What's Blooming in the Garden this week!


One of the things I love about living in Southern California is that we don't have harsh four seasons. I have flowers year round and roses till the end of the year.
So let's go out in the garden and see what's blooming today!



My Petunias are still doing fabulous! Last year I had Petunias all through the winter months so I will be curious to see if they do it again this year

Marigolds are a fun annual too. Here is a cute barrel full Lavender is always so pretty and smells so good. I like to dry the flowers and put them in homemade sachet packets My Zennias are still blooming. I like to dry out the flowers and plant them again next year
Rudbeckia Hirta - I plant these flowers every year, they are a perennials but they never come back for me the following year. I don't know what I do wrong! So today I picked some of the dry flowers and I am going to use them as seeds and plant them next year This plant is called Heliotrope. I just bought it and planted it about 2 weeks ago. It is a perennial and is suppose to return next year. Right now it is about 8" tall and it should grow up to 36" one day
Another pretty fall Perennial Now we will go check out some of my Roses! I Love Roses!




































































Hope you enjoyed a walk with me through my garden this week. Now go on over to Jean's Blog at Ms Green Thumb Jean and check out some of the other Blooming Tuesday Posts!

So many beautiful flowers! Soon, I will have many of the ones shown. They are winter flowers here, so my garden will have some color again, other than cactus flowers.
Fall has been a long time coming!

What a feast for the eyes! Petunias never do well for me, zinnia and marigold are on my 'get for fall' list. Your roses are really showing off! Happy Tuesday to you!

Must be nice to have year round blooming, I have to change my flowers out for different seasons here in FL. Like your blog.

You have wonderful blooms to share this week Anne Fannie. I love Heliotrope, doesn't it smell wonderful?! I bet your mild weather allows you to grow things as perennials that are only annuals here. The whiskeybarrel full of Marigolds is quite lovely too!

Your garden must have a wonderful aroma with all those roses blooming. Amazing! I love the Rudbeckia Hirta and the cone flowers. How lucky you are to have blooms all winter! Jean

Spectacular roses! I love roses but have about given up on them except for Knockouts. The humidity here in Georgia does such a number on them and I hate to spray.

Oh how gorgeous! My neice got married in La Jolla last spring and I had my first trip as an adult to your state. I was just taken with the amazing varieties of flowering trees and bushes everywhere I went. I was in heaven! If I weren't so captivated with the desert I would be there in a heartbeat!
Thanks for sharing your lovely gardents- truly a joy to visit!

I was born and raised on the central coast of Calif. Imagine my shock when we moved to Utah and I had to buy annuals, well, annually! I do love the seasons here and the tulips are the best. We just couldn't do bulbs in CA. Mimi

Hi Annie, loved the pretty pictures. My daughter has just been stationed to Monterey, California for her training in the Navy. Not sure how the weather is there, but I would really like to go out there and visit her soon. Looking at your pretty flowers, it would be tempting to move out that way!blessings, Kathleen
