Today's Flowers: some recent blooms around my garden


The coriopsis is beginning to bloom in my garden, although much of it is being chocked by the honeysuckle.

I am always happy to see the ice plant coming back with its pink flowers.

I especially enjoy your ice plant. Someone a few blocks away is growing a patch of those flowers in front of their house - I always admire the flowers.

Lavender is lovely when full - look forward to more.

Love the ice plat - looks a lot like queen Anne's Lace.

I think my labels may have been confusing. The pink flower is on the ice plant and the large white blooms are the Queen Anne's Lace. Thanks to everyone for visiting.

This is a wonderful series! They're all very beautiful but I love the color of the coriopsis and the pink ice plant.

Lovely blossoms! I have never seen QAL this early in the season - it is a late summer flower here (although many people call it a weed). I envy you the scent of the lavender...
