Gardening

Did some gardening today...darn weeds!
But I still love this time of year because all my perrennials are starting to bloom. Every year I seem to get a MYSTERY "plant" blooming amongst the ones I planted....it's so amazing how the birds digestive system or the pollination of bees seem to help out my gardens!

Here's a few pics of this weeks blooming flowers...such brilliant colors!
This is Evening Primrose...during the day the flowers open to show this gorgeous yellow and then once evening comes, they close up tight and reveal their bright red covering...so cool!



And the mystery flower of the summer is...........................? Does anyone know this plant? I never planted it but here it blooms...it has beautiful blueish-purple flowers!
Thanks for checking out all my "bolognie"!!!! And don't forgot to stop and "smell the roses"!
