DAILY DISCOVERY - garden bloggers bloom day

It is incredibly energizing and exciting to have plants that came with our new home last fall reveal their true selves. Every day there are new blooms in the garden and considering that I have colour themed garden beds I am very eager to see where these plants are going to fit. 

With the peonies for example, red is a colour I can work with and in fact some are already growing in the perfect spot!

With the Iris I again lucked out with colours that will work well in my new gardens.
Once they are done blooming I will switch these two colours because the white/purple will be absolutely perfect to transition between the white and purple gardens!

The Dianthus has pink blooms so it will be moved out of my garden to my parent' garden, but what can you expect from a flower nicknamed "pinks"?

So all in all, not too bad in terms of finding spots for most plants that were here already.


  1. It is fun to switch plants around to get the 'look' that we want.

    1. There are a lot of Iris that will need switching, but come next year it will all be worth it.

  2. Although I don't grow Dianthus in my own garden, I do find them quite charming. Iris are one of my all time favorites. Happy GBBD!

  3. I found a relatively new Dianthus this year, called 'Diana blueberry.' Its advertising claims it's a true blue, but I am finding it to be more purple. At any rate, it's not pink!

    Moving plants around is the gardener's version of rearranging the furniture on a regular basis! I rarely move furniture, but I seem to always be moving one plant or another!

    1. I tried planting red ones from seed but had no luck with them, as long as they are not pink, nor too much like carnations, I could find a spot for them.

  4. thanx for your beautiful weekend flowers! :)
