Bloomin' Tuesday

Welcome to Bloomin' Tuesday. My pictures today are the flowers that have survived the end of summer and are still blooming in my garden.

I love the marigolds and vica. They are both so hardy and beautiful. I have them in pots surrounding the pool.


I have a few zinnias that have finally bloomed among the impatience. The zinnias did not do well this summer. I will plant some again in the spring.
The snapdragons are hardier than I had thought. Some still have fresh, beautiful blooms.

This week's flag has a fall theme. It will soon be Halloween.

Thank you, Jean of
http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com/ for hosting Bloomin' Tuesday. To see more beautiful blooms, please visit Jean.

What wonderful combinations you have blooming near your pool. Marigolds, Vinca Vine & Snapdragons are such reliable bloomers. Your weather must have cooled off some, because Snapdragons prefer cooler days. Happy Bloomin Tuesday Sweetie!

Lovely! Your impatients are wonderful! I love marigolds, and pairing them with var vinca is smart!

You have some great leftovers! Love the flag. Do you change them each season and holiday? My niece does that, and also puts up birthday flags.

It won't be long and we'll have to say good-bye to our beautiful flowers. It does give us something to look forward to in the spring. If you're anything like me in about Feb. I start dreaming about what kind of flowers I'm going to be planting in April. Your flowers are still beautiful!!!
Hugs, ~Terrie~
