Inside Out Garden Blooms

Nope, will not be turning any blooms inside out during this posting...just showing some of my flowers that keep emerging, both inside and outside of the house.

The beautiful pink Climatis have decided to show themselves now......

As have my favorite, the purple Clematis (my favorite color)

Laying on the ground for this shot gave me an interesting vantage point and also shows some purple Iris just starting to open.

Inside blooms seem to have been non stop, starting with a faithful little bloomer of mine, Rosy Tyke.....a lovely Orchid that comes into bloom each year without fail.

These little Phal's I purchased recently at a garden center where I bought my annuals. They were so tiny and well priced I might add, that I just couldn't resist them.

I've really been going through a white phase with Orchids these days and this is one I just added to my collection this year.

Little "Woody", that is the name I have given this no longer small Orchid. I bought this lovely pale lavender/pink orchid on ebay many years ago, it was my first Orchid, purchased bare root. Nothing happened for years with this Orchid and I was frankly on the verge of just sending him to Orchid heaven when Woody starting blooming every year and also grew very large and made lots of new roots. Now this Orchid is one of my favorites and is a faithful repeat bloomer for me each and every year. I hope you've enjoyed the tour.

Ruth, your clematis blooms are beautiful, and so big!

I've always loved and admired your orchids too. I sure wish I could grow them.

Hi Ruth, Your blooms are gorgeous. I love how you took the pics and the angle from the ground.
The purple clematis is beautiful and so large too. Mine bloomed already and were smaller, but very pretty. This is the first year for mine to really bloom since we landscaped last year.

Your orchids are out of this world. You certainly have a green thumb for them. Just lovely.

Hope you have a great weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
