What's in the Garden Today


It's Blooming Tuesday again so lets take a stroll through the garden and see what's Blooming today!

Lots of beautiful Red Pentas
My Zennias are still blooming like crazy!
Fall Pumpkins!

A rose called "Hot Shot" Pink Hydrangea

One of my Avocado trees is loaded with Avocado!

Anthurium Fiesta

Red Hibicus

A cute Watermelon birdhouse

A rose called Proud Land

A Rose Bud called Queen Mary

Bell Peppers

A Rose called "Promise". This rose bush is so very special to me. My father made me this bush from his bush right before he died. He never was able to see my garden so I planted this rose bush right in the middle of my garden so his love can at least be there with me

Thank you for strolling with me through my garden today. Please go visit Jean at Green Thumb Jean Blog and see other Blooming Tuesday posts!

You have one of the most beautiuful posts today. Your flowers are so pretty. That would be a special rose regardless of it's connection to you but I know how much sweeter that makes a plant or flower. I have a lily from Billy's Mom, that is very special to me.

What beautiful flowers and produce. I grew up in southern California and lived there for many years after I was grown. It will always have a special place in my heart.

What a lovely tribute to your dad to plant his rose in the center of your garden. Everything looks lovely. I was able to grow one pumpkin this year. I have a hard time growing squash - don't know why!
