It's a Blooming Tuesday

One of the two old urns that grace the front steps

Rhododendron 'Catabiense album'
This one is well over eight feet tall, I started it as a cutting back in 1975
Rhododendron 'Vulcan'
One of the few nursery bought Rhodie's ( 1995 )

Blooming Viburnum Tomentosum or Doublefile Viburnum
Successfully screens CCL the Crazy Cat Ladies yard from view....Meeeeow!

Clematis Montana 'Marjorie'
A smallish flower but a favorite, planted on the front porch rail.

And some fresh blooms in the greenhouse
Vanda 'Murphy's Gold'

From the greenhouse to the Sunroom, this Epicactus 'Padre'. It has a light fragrance but the flowers are so big.


  1. Love your diplay of flowers in the old urns, so timeless and welcoming.
    I have no Viburnums but would love to try growing some, the Clematis is a gorgeous shade, and quite unusaul.
    You have a green thumb my friend.

  2. Catching up, Doc. :) Lovely flowers. Loved Grouchy's rose, too!
    Hope you're all doing well. Have a Happy Wednesday!

  3. Lovely!!! Don't you find you feel better just having blooming flowers around??

  4. Jo,
    They are nice plants and they love the moisture.

    Good to hear from you, I worry about your end of the country.

    Yes with our rainy climate it is nice to have flowers in and out of the house.

  5. There are a couple of old earns like that in the garden to the big house, I have to be careful that the frost doesn't break then in winter. you have some really nice blooms there.

  6. Rob,
    When we are going to have a bad winter I usually cover them in bubble wrap. Wouldn't want to lose them after all these years.

  7. Gorgeous photos of your flowers!
