Bloomin' Tuesday!

I'm going to share 7 gardens that Mom and I got to visit this weekend during the Secret Garden Tour that Mom was part of this year. Mom and I always go on the tour, but this year Mom's Gardens were in the tour. I'm just going to show close ups today and will share the gardens over the next few weeks.

This is a picture of Blanket Flowers from a garden that wasn't on the tour. It was taken where we all met up to start our tour.

Day Lily at The Switala's Garden.

Oriental Poppy from the Johnson's Garden.

Zinnia from the Shepherd's Garden.

Irises from Memory Gardens.

Yellow Yarrow from the Culpepper's Garden.

An arrangement I did for the front of Mom's house for the tour. It was made from wild flowers we picked in a field.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful blooms from the tour. You got some great shots, I love that Iris (Japanese I think) and that Gallardia in the first pic. ;)

Those white & purple irises are so pretty. The wild flower arrangement that you did for your Mom is beautiful. I wish I had wild flowers like that near me! Happy Gardening :)

Love your 'just flowers' shots! The crock does look great! I also like the 'frame' around the pics. Mom

Oh my gosh those are gorgeous photos. That arrangement you made is fabulous. That type of flower arrangement is my favorite -- so beautiful and natural looking. I must say I've never seen an oriental poppy like that one. It's amazing!
