Rudbeckia Irish Eyes

More from my new perennial garden, Rudbeckia Irish Eyes is blooming now.  Large, brilliant yellow, they are beautiful!  Catmint herb was in the background when I took this photo a couple of days ago but I have dug up the Catmint and moved it into a pot because it was rapidly spreading and this is just the first year.

From My Garden..

Just a few photos of my garden.  Above is Japanese Blood Grass and that deep rich red does look like the color of blood.  I thought that this plant had died from the cold winter we had but thankfully it was merely dormant.

Below is Astrantia Major, common name is Masterwort.  This flower was in the bouquet I posted about earlier (go here).  It was a flower we had in the garden of our previous home so hearing that a local nursery was carrying it, I had to go and buy one for myself.  It was already blooming, an added bonus.  I think that it is lovely.

Below is Day Lily Stella D’Oro.  It’s bright yellow color is not dimmed in shade.  I moved it from another spot in the garden this Spring so it is not blooming as much as it can.

Lastly, below is Jacob’s Ladder, so-called because of the shape of the leaves which does resemble the rungs of a ladder.   The clusters of light blue flowers are lovely atop a rather tall plant.

Geum Mrs. Bradshaw

This is a perennial, Geum variety Mrs. Bradshaw.  It is the earliest bloomer in one of my new perennial garden areas.  Such brilliant color in sun or shade.
