Primroses, Roses, Begonias, Dahlias and Lobelia

Happy floral Friday and welcome to "this week in my Maryland garden!" The yellow primroses that my kind friend Mary gave me last year have multiplied and I'm thrilled. They brighten up a mostly shady part of our yard and are visible from two different windows.

The hot pink and light red roses seem to be doing the best this year and are still covered in beautiful, bright blooms. The Mr. Lincoln rose we planted last year has only produced one flower so far but it was huge and delightfully fragrant.

The yellow nonstop begonias are still going strong and I love their very large flowers (much larger than the traditional begonias we have in another area).

 Last week I shared my new yellow and sunset dahlias and mentioned that we also added a burgundy dahlia and here it is. I think the sunset dahlias are my favorite but I love them all.

I debated between sharing this lobelia photo or one of my echinacea photos. The lobelia is thriving in my window boxes and the echinacea just started blooming this week. But I had a much nicer echinacea photo in this blog post and don't think I've shared a lobelia photo before so picked the lobelia. They are more of a true blue in person even though they look kind of purple in this photo.

That's all for this week's garden tour. I hope you'll join me again next Friday to see what's blooming in my Maryland garden.

I love hearing from you and I'm always interested to learn what's blooming in  your area! And what your favorite photo of the post is. Last week the sunset dahlia won the most votes and is the reader's favorite. Thank you for visiting and may God bless you!
