Blooming Tuesday

Today is Blooming Tuesday. I thought I would show some pictures of my Gerbera Daisies that I have blooming in my garden today. I just love these flowers. They stay green all year long with their big leafy leaves and from summer through fall they bloom beautiful flowers in every color!

Yellow
Pink

Orange

Dark Orange

Rust

Dark Pink

Salmon














Here are some fruit and vegetables I still have in my garden today

Eggplant












Zucchini Squash and Cherry Tomatoes



My Black Fig Tree is full of figs and they are just starting to turn black











Our Apple Tree full of delicious green apples










Years ago our property use to be a Avocado Grove. This is one of the remaining Avocado Trees. Its loaded with Avocados








My Orange Tree is full of Oranges. They should be ready to harvest around the first of the year as long as we don't have any frost mornings!




Here are some pumpkins that I harvested from my yard. I think it looks funny to see a fall pumpkin arrangement with pink roses in the back ground!

I like Gerber Daisies too! They are cheerful flowers that come in a wonderful variety of colors. You have a great assortment of fruits & veggies growing in your gardens. Happy Bloomin' Tuesday Anne Fannie!

You have such a beautiful garden. And so bountiful. One thing I really miss about California is the lemon tree in my backyard. I do love the Utah peaches though. Mimi

Thanks for stopping by. I love your Gerber Daisies. I have never had any my self. And thrilled to see the Veggies are still doing well. Ours in Mo. with all the rain did not do so good this year.
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday

What a great collection of Gerber Daisies. I really like the rust ones. Do you have them planted mixed or separately?
How lucky that you can have apples and oranges, along with avacados. We have the oranges here, but it doesn't get cool enough for apples, and it's too hot and dry for avacados, although I've seen a tree or two in very protected areas. However, they never produce. Southern California must be a gardener's heaven!

Your daisies are gorgeous, I like the soft pink one the best.
Lucky you to have an avocado tree, if there was no food left in the world but avacados (and mango`s) that would be ok by me, we eat them by the ton!

Beautiful Gerbera Daisies, fruit looks tasty and the pumpkins with the pink in the background does look different, pretty though.

The Gerber Daisies come in such great colors! I don't have one - I'll have to do something about that next year.

I especially enjoyed see all your fruits and vegetables. I'm thinking about putting in a fig. Supposedly they do well in Georgia.

The Gerbera Daisies are gorgeous. Your veggies look great. I cooked with zucchini this year for the first time and it was delicious. You have a lovely garden.

Love the gerber daisies, but when that avocado tree came into view you had me! Oh, how I'd love to have an avocado tree in my garden. All your flowers, fruits and veggies look luscious!

Hi Anne:-)

Thank you so much for coming to my blog and leaving such a lovely comment! I always enjoy meeting new people:-)

Your Gerbera Daisies are so lovely, the colours so striking! I tried growing some last year but the darn bugs made a meal of them. Ick! Your garden is amazing and look at all those fruit trees...how wonderful everything is! We didn't grow any pumpkins this year so I'm really going to have to buy some for Halloween! xox

I also love all things Victorian! the geberas are so colourful. We have a similar indigeneous flower here in South Africa, called the Barberton Daisy. I found your lovely blog through Smiling Sal's Blue Monday!

Wow, your garden is still really going strong! Love those pretty
flowers.
