Blooming Flowers.


              Mom has been home all week sick with the flu bug.
       She walked around our backyard avoiding the weeds so
       while out there she snapped a few photos of flowers.
       We wanted to share with you whats blooming here in the PNW.
        Or I should say, look at our  mud and weeds patch.

            This little beauty  is a Fuchsia  mom got for 99 cents it is still alive.

                              This slider is from the dining room out to the patio area.
                               It gets the most sun so mom placed her pots here. 
                               We have another sliding door in the family room to go out side. 

                                                             Mom said she thinks this is a day lily,
                                            it was here when we moved in and just about to bloom.

                              Here we have a dead lavender tree in the black pot. You can you see it in the                                          top center of this photo. Mom still waters it hoping it will come back to life.

                                   I don't know the names of these plants or ivy mom stuck a little purple
                                   flower in the middle for some color.               


                                This little pink flower is mommy's favorite geranium.

                           We don't know what variety this Hosta  is but another favorite of ma's

                               Boxwood is shown below. We have two of them flanking
                               both sides of the back door. 


                                     A view of our side yard, there are raised beds.
                                 we never got a chance to plant anything as it was to
                                 late in June when we moved in here..
                                Plus ma was unpacking for 87000 days and nights.


                                                  Below is the Hydrangea mom was so happy to get.
                                               It lasted 2 days in the sun. Mom came home from work
                                               one day and it was dead.
                                               RIP... pretty Hydrangea. It is still in a pot beside the garage
                                               maybe if it gets rain water it might come back.
                                                My ma can't throw dead pants away, send her some
                                                 power if the plant vibes. 

                                                  The other boxwood by the back door.
                                                               The kitty is ceramic.

   Well that's it for our yard................ I didn't show you our dead grass cause it is not pretty.
   Mom was shocked to learn very few people in Washington water they grass in summer.
  Ma was watering out front one late afternoon then she looked and all the neighbors yards
  were dried out too. I guess it's a conservation  thing here.


  1. You have some very nice flowers. We don't have any left now. Just lots of leaves either falling to the ground or finally starting to change color.

    Oh that's a fine collection and yard, Astro; tell mum that fuschias and geraniums and hydrangeas are my own personal favourites! The hydrangea, planted on the shadiest side of the house and in the ground, not a pot, may very well come back; alternatively, take cuttings near to the root stock... certainly sending some POTPlant to it. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. OMD OMD your flowers are BEAUTIFUL... Love the 99 Cent fuchsia.
    YES, that IS a Day Lily.

  4. What beautimous flowers!!
    Jakey, Arty & Rosy

  5. oh Astro, your MOms and My Ma have the same brown thumb!!! I can't tells you how many plants have one green sprig coming out of an all brown, dead plant, butts Ma says, it COULD come back! um..nah. Ma just tries to buy plants of sale, and see what lives and apologizes to the poor victims. Around here Hibiscus are the most successful. She has only managed to kill one, butts I thinks there could be more coming. Stay tuned. ☺
    On the bright side, it looks like your Moms has lots and lots of successes there Astro! Hey, have you tried 'pruning' them yourself? heheheheee

  6. we love the flowers in your garden... the mama grinned as she saw the boxwood... she remembered the adventure to give ours a new haircut looked so awful that even the plant felt shame and it grew in record time back to normal :O)

  7. That fuschia is just gorgeous!
    There's no much flowering here at the moment
    Get well soon Mom
    Loves and licky kisses

  8. Thank you for showing us your beautiful flowers. Ghostwriter says to be sure to pile all the leaves that fall from that maple tree into those raised garden boxes. They'll provide fertilizer for next season.

  9. Love your October blooms. We bet next year will be even better with all that space to plant! ♥

  10. Very pretty plants and flowers. Mom must have a green thumb.

  11. So many beautiful flowers!! I hope your mom feels better soon!
