Bloomin' Tuesday

It's Bloomin' Tuesday at the foot of the Colorado Rockies. We returned Sunday from our trip to Sandpoint. While there I took a few photos of the beautiful flowers in my mother-in-law's flower beds. It was so lush and green in northern Idaho...

We have had unusually wet, unsettled weather in Colorado recently. As a matter of fact when we flew into DIA on Sunday, Denver was under a tornado warning. Trust me when I say Disneyland has nothing on the ride you get when you fly into Denver during a summer thunderstorm! Anyway, all this moisture has made this corner of Colorado a veritable Garden of Eden. This week I'm featuring a few of my roses that started to bloom while we were gone. I'm sorry that I don't have the names for them. I don't pay much attention to names when I select roses. I let my nose and eyes do the talking. If a rose catches my fancy in color, shape, and fragrance -- she's in! Here's a sampling of these beauties...

I can't help but show off my bougainvillea. She's in heaven with all the humidity we've had in the air...

To see more Bloomin' Tuesday posts, travel on over to Ms. Green Thumb Jean's for a look-see!

Every week I look at your flowers and fall in love. I think you should come visit next spring and we could go on a crazy plant shopping spree and then a planting spree. For.real. Are you up for it :)

My bouganvillea has returned for the third year, no color though! What's up with the weird weather around the country? I don't pay much attention to names of roses either. Your blooms are pretty.

Very pretty blooms this week! When I called my son in Denverlast evening, I could hear the tornado sirens going off. They were listening to the news trying to see if they should retreat to the basement!
