Rainy Day Flowers: This Week in My Maryland Garden

I took these flower photos in my Maryland garden during a break between rainstorms yesterday. As you can see our Stella d'Oro re-blooming day lilies are finally in bloom and there are plenty of buds promising more flowers to come.

 This is a scented geranium we bought in the herb section of a local garden center. We were pleasantly surprised to see these little pink flowers on it.

 Here are the red tipped wax begonias I mentioned in last week's garden post.

Our African daisy plant has been going strong since Ben purchased it back in March

Our echinacea (this one is a purple coneflower) is getting closer to blooming. Last year we had purple, white and yellow echinacea but the yellow and white seemed near death by the end of fall so we're not sure whether the ones growing in their spot will be yellow and white or seedlings from one of the original purple echinacea plants we'd planted in previous years.

I'm guessing this plant with the tiny blue flowers is a weed but it's in a spot I don't care about so I'm letting it be for now. Do you happen to know what it is? 

Hope you enjoyed this week's photo tour of my Maryland garden. Which was your favorite photo of the post? Feel free to comment below or email me at lovejoypeas@gmail.com. May God bless you and keep you!


  1. Hey, Phyllis. Pretty sure that's a Forget Me Not. :) Beautiful pics. Congrats!

    1. Thank you Michelle! I thought they looked like tiny forget me nots but didn't realize they could grow that small. Maybe the wild ones have smaller flowers. :)
