Saturday Blooms

I planted two huge packs of wildflower seeds in the Spring. Well this is the only one that showed up and I have no idea what it is. Anyone want to guess?
Thanks to Nola we have an answer to this one.
It is a Larkspur! Thanks Nola!!!!
Enjoy your day!!!!

I got this Japanese Painted Fern last weekend. Its so pretty and I have wanted one since I saw Joys(-:

I also bought this deer fern at the same place last weekend(-: So little and cute!

Plums are ready to pick

Peaches are almost ready!

I hope the squirrels have enough sunflower seeds to eat...(-:

A pretty red rose!

Of course one more daylily! I never get tired of seeing them blooming!

Hey Cindee girl !!
I would love to have that deer fern : ) it would be perfect for my collection of ferns by my meditation Buddha in the back garden : ) I love all your plants for today's pictures .. roses are so hard to get a clear picture of with their intense colour don't you find ? .... and all that fruit ! It looks delicious girl .. I think we always have a lot of produce from California in our grocery stores for some reason ? LOL

Hi Joy,
I had never seen a deer fern before. Since I love deer(-: I had to have one(-:
California does produce a lot of fruit!
Roses are hard to photograph. Especially the lighter colored ones! I do have a hard time getting the color!

Sorry I can't help ya on the first one Cindee but it's pretty. Love the Painted Fern I have one too but I don't have the deer fern and it's really sweet. Maybe I don't need something that has 'deer' in it right now. LOL But I do love them too but with me it's a love/hate relationship! ;-) The gray green sure is a great background for your rose photo - It really sets it off! Very nice!

Cindee--wonder if that is a wild sweet pea. I had one this year that looked just like that.
Will you make jellies with your fruit, or do you can or freeze? Or, maybe make cobblers....YUM!!!
Have a good weekend! :)

Hi RainGardener,
I know deer can be a royal pain in the you know what. They are cute though(-: They also have really fun personalities(-: I hope the Painted Fern lives here. It is pretty hot in the summer. So its kinda a test(-: I planted it in an old coal bucket so I am going to see how well it does this Summer there.

Hi Meadowview Thymes,
I do use the fruit for baking. We love peach pie(-: I also love to just eat them(-: I make jelly out of the plums. They are the kind for canning.
Not sure on the wild flower yet. Its pretty though(-:

That first photo is a larkspur. They are easy to grow and will reseed themselves for next year. My grandmother's yard used to be FULL of them this time of the year.

perennialgardener said...

Yep I agree with Nola. Isn't it pretty, love the ferny foliage. ;) Great looking fern too. They are my favorite shade lovers right now.

Pretty ferns! They just love the shade. Warm wishes for a wonderful weekend, Esther

Jessica said...

Gorgeous blooms and those plums...WOW! My daughter can eat those by the barrel

Your fruit looks yummy! Nice ferns! Larkspur is one of my favorite flowers that come back in the spring from last year's seeds. The plants usually die the middle of summer. Same for bachelor buttons.

Don't you just love the Japanese ferns? They get quite large after a few years growth and they just keep getting prettier. I have never saw a deer fern, such a pretty little thing. Yummy your peaches are looking good.

flowergardengirl said...

Oh yes! your bloomers all look grand. I get so discouraged when my seeds don't germinate--now if it was a weed, errrr. Pesky weeds seem to always thrive.

The orchard looks yummy. Seems like some home made ice cream might be in order.

I've burned up to painted ferns in my gardening career which was a very expensive death.
