Thirteen Pretty Perennials in my garden:

(Busy busy week here, so it's going to be a quick list today, but I chose to do perennials because I had aweful luck with them the first year I tried, but this year I have been so pleasantly surprised at what's already blooming:)

1. Delphiniums
2. Chasta Daisies
3. Roses (ok, these aren't perennials, they're bushes, but they still return to bloom each year:)
4. Purple cone flower
5. Phlox
6. Salvia
7. Lilies (my friend Alana shared these with me from her garden last year and I think they will actually bloom this year:)
8. Irises (another plant shared with me by Alana...it didn't bloom last year, but I'm hoping it's established enough to bloom this year).
9. Painted Daisies.
10. Tulips (although they are done blooming now)
11. Obedient plant (this is what they look like as someone in the comments mentioned they hadn't seen one before)
12. Pink Nancy (got this at the Church perrenial sale last year and already I've been able to divide the plant and share it in other parts of our beds...I'm sure it has another name too.)
13. A purple flowering plant that I can't remember the name of right now, but when I get the chance to go out into the backyard tonight, I will update this with it's name)
**update* I went outside and there's no tag in the ground, so I still can't place the name of that plant, but I noticed that I have several other perrenials that I haven't already listed...dianthis, violas, aruga and chives.

Tulips are my favorite. I have to work hard at it but I've been able to raise a few here in Tampa.

Heather Smith said...

I love flowers! Roses especially. We have a climbing rose bush on a trellis. It's beautiful! Mine are up here and here!

Ardice said...

Tulips and Irises are my favorites. I find gardening is such a peaceful hobby. I'm hoping to get some more flowers going in my garden.

Thanks for the visit. I hope your day is running smoothly. Take-Care...

Kelly said...

My Irises didn't bloom this year and I was disappointed. Painted daisies are so pretty! And I am sad that my tulips are gone.

TNChick said...

I have many flowers around my home but don't know the names of most. I know I have peonies, lily, roses, azelas (sp?) but not sure what else...

Chi said...

Yellow roses are my favorite flowers but tulips & lilies are beautiful too....actually, I think all flowers are lovely. *s*

Thanks for visiting my T13 today.

Tricia said...

I have all of those plants with the exception of 11, 12 and it depends on what 13 turns out to be. Although some of mine haven't bloomed yet, I must be in a slightly cooler zone than you. :)

Melli said...

Sounds like you have a fabulous garden! I've never heard of "obedient plant" - I'm going to have to google that one! I LOVE delphiniums! Great list!

EmilyRoseJewel said...

What an amazing garden that must be. I wish I had such a beautiful garden, but me thumbs are not very green I must say. Thanks for stopping by today!

Fida said...

woah... thats many!

I can imagine u have a beautiful garden!

txsoapmom43 said...

We have roses and they're beautiful. I just love their smell.

Lazy Daisy said...

Sounds really pretty. Of course I'm partial to the daisies!

PixiePincessMom said...

Sounds like you've got a beautiful flowerbed going there. I didn't plant anything this year. My iris' came back from the winter so I guess that's a good thing. Only, the white ones are the only ones that ever bloom & I planted 5 different colors, odd. My fav has to be geraniums; no matter how hard I try; I can't kill them. :-)

I just love flowers!!! We spent the last 2 weekends planting and doing multch! YOu have several of the same kinds of things we do, some of my very favorates, like 3 (number 1 fav) 7,8,and 10 :)GREAT list!

Tess said...

I kill plants, I admire with great admiration those who can successfully grow things.

TLC said...

I love flowers, in a big way. But sadly, I have a black thumb. I keep hoping that I will get better, but I wonder if the real reason is that I am not dedicated enough and choose to spend my time doing other things. I don't weed regularly and such. I suppose I would if I really wanted it to be a priority. Something to think about.

Thanks for visiting my T13.

Renee said...

The new dianthus that I just bought this year had tags calling them annuals...wonder what's up with that. My clematis are blooming in order...its weird.

I’m so sorry that it took me so long to drop by today. Darly & I were planting stuff and then I got involved in a book…I know…not really a good excuse for not blogging…huh?

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I really appreciate your comments.

When I saw the picture of 11 I thought it was a foxglove.
You are lucky - we are still in bluebells and apple blossom here - too early for heads on cultivated plants. Sounds like a lovely garden!

LibertyBelle said...

I've been out planting away and taking lots of pictures of flowers and trees.
You'll find lots of beautiful cherry blossoms just before they disappeared in one of my pictures!
I love flowers!
Good TT
My Thursday Thirteen is up.
