My turn....

Gardens are still in pretty bad shape. Not a lot of time to work them so far this year. But I do still have some nice plants coming up. Please ignore the weeds.
My white potentilla shrub. It's full of blooms right now.

One of my many ground covers. The flower lasts for quite a while and is a prolific self seeder. Love it!

Part of my side garden. The yellow flower is a columbine. So is the purple and white one. To the left is one of my taller Blanket Flowers. Another of my favs. In the background is one of my Coral Bells.

The pink flower is another columbine. And of course Dead Nettle in the background. The tall plant to the right is my Globe Centura. When it is in bloom it is gorgeous with big yellow flowers. Looks like thorn flowers.

Another of the Prunella Freelander. They are a neat ground cover flower. They flower for a long time.

Thanks ladies.
clm - The pink one isn't nearly as invasive as the white creeper is. If you would like PM me your addy and I will send on some seed when the time is right. Anyone else wants some let me know.

Beautiful flowers, 14+ Is the red groundcover a saxifrage?

I had no idea Jacob's ladders flowered that tall! Mine is in the shade of the hummingbird garden and doesn't have nearly that many flowers...and none are that tall! Very pretty!

I got that plant so many years ago I can't remember exactly what it is. Pretty bad huh? I seem to remember them being in the sedum family though. I will have to check the books later. Would you like some of the seed sent?
Jacob's Ladder seems to do a lot better grown in full sun. That particular plant has been there about4 years now.

If you have any to spare, I'd love some of the seed! I have the perfect spot for it out front

What lovely plants!! I haven't been out in my gardens much at all this year and now the black flies are out and I really don't want to go out there. LOL

I will just keep coming to the garden forum, now that I have found it, to look at all your flowers.
