    So, we all like showing off our gardens. Sometimes, at least for me, I want to share a photo or two but I don't want to make an entirely new thread for it. That's why I created this. This can be a place where we all can share our gardens on any given day, or every day. Photos, videos, whatever you'd like to share. I created a similar thread over on the pond forum and it's gone well. I'll start it out.

    My Blanket Flower is just about to bloom. I grow quite a few of these around my yard, and it should look great when they're all blooming!

    I also have a short video of my mostly-native wildflower garden which is entering its first full year. Most plants are seedlings, so it'll take another season before many of the plants bloom.

    Your blanket flower is stunning JB. I'm always inspired on this forum. I've grown it individually but now I'm sure I have just the right area for blanket of them. Thanks for sharing.

    That's a great idea for a thread, JBtheExplorer:D I'll take a picture of my miniature roses as soon as I come back home (right now, I'm at my parents').
    Your Blanket Flower is beautiful!

    I don't have much room here in town but I did what I could to create a little spot of color out my back door. Our first attempt at landscaping. It isn't done yet but we now have a sunny spot to spruce up the view.

    It's a great beginning. You're doing a really good job:) If I were you, I'd plant some miniature roses there. Roses are my obsession and I always plant them everywhere I can:D

    Here are my recent blooms:

    The first is a plant native to the US called Blue-Eyed Grass. There are many kinds, but this one is one of the more popular types for gardens. I highly recommend it!

    Here's an Iris. I'm not sure what it is, but I think it's a white Siberian iris.

    Spiderwort
    IMG_0463 copy.jpg

    Orange Milkweed getting close to blooming. It's one of my favorite plants.

    and I can't forget Gaillardia, another one of my favorites!

    Not much to see on the plot at the moment but with the rain and warmer weather things should get away now:) DSCN1456.JPG

    Finished, maybe.JPG Lilies and Roses.JPG Put in a few new flowers and a rose bush. Not sure if I'm done now or not. I may get a strange notion and expand further.

    All your flowers look beautiful! I especially love Blue-Eyed Grass. It's such a charming name for a plant:love:
    Gaillardias are wonderful too.

    I am planning on transplanting the goats beard this fall, hope to split it in two. Its been in that spot for 20 years at least, not balanced well with the other look of the garden. Placed there when something else taller was there so it did work then.

    Today my garden is wet and muddy from a day of rain.The weather was dry the day before, but rained the two days prior to that. It's good for the plants, yes, but it slows down my progress! I have finally started to organize things a bit from the random mess of plants and now the rain, heat, and mosquitoes are taking over.

    Absolutely gorgeous plants you have there JBtheExplorer almost all of which are also my favorites - truly excellent shots too and especially that last one of the Gaillardia which I have to say - is a stunningly beautiful shot :)
