Ah, much better after a day of pulling cosmos seedlings and weeds. Thank you to Tina and Nina for the Cosmos seeds! As you can see, they did great in my Georgia Garden. Do you see the purple bloom at the bottom right corner of this picture? Yep, a volunteer Butterfly Bush has popped up in the garden! I will be relocating this bush to another spot in the near future.
And what is this tall plant with purple flowers?
Note, see the tiny white blooms on the plant to the right of this one? More on it later in this post... A closer look shows the tiny blooms of this beauty. Tina, Nina, which of you gave me these seeds as I have no idea what this one lone plant is called.
Over time, she branched out about mid way up the stem.
The branches bloomed and her weight, pushed her over to the ground. Black Jack, (the stray cat we have been taking care of these days) likes to hide under the pretty plant.
Here is the foliage of the beauty.
And again, the beautiful purple blooms.
Help Bloggers, what is this plant so I can make a note of it and will it self seed for me?Now to the other plant I mentioned above. I tossed lots of seed in spring and not sure what I tossed where. Note to self; mark areas where you toss seed in the future! This plant grew tall and fell over to the ground as if a ground cover. Here is a close-up of the tiny white blooms. I referred to my seed packets and the only thing I can think of is, Forget-Me-Nots. Could this be? If so, I am confused as the seed I planted were Blue Bird so they should be blue in color.Remember the voluntary Butterfly Bush I mentioned above? Well, look what popped up beside the bush! Yep, my very first Tuberrose! Nina, this is not the one you gave me but that one is surviving in the wishing well garden. I hope she will give me blooms next year. This one I must give credit to my mother as she gave me the tubers for my birthday last year. I was shocked to see it bloom as I had given up on it. Tina Posted on this beauty a long time ago. Click HERE to read about it and see her beautiful blooms. You are all so correct in describing the scent of this bloom. It was pure joy to my nose! It reminded me of the wonderful scent the Jasmine gives me in late spring. Ah, it was awesome. My Tuberrose did not open up as nicely as Tina's plant but I have hope for a stronger plant full of blooms next year.
I have neglected the Semi-Formal Garden this year and must rectify that. I need to move some things around and add some things as well. Even though I had these mystery plants and some surprises in the garden, I must do better by her next year. I must remember to not only add new things to my entire yard, but not ignore the existing gardens as well. I must find a happy balance in the future or stop adding new gardens.
There you have it; My ENTRY OF MYSTERIES, In the Garden.
