The first is a petunia but I cannot remember at the moment the name. 2,5 & 8gloriosa are oxalis.

Thanks Marie for the info. I thought the first one was a petunia but it looked just a little different to me and I have not seen that color before. Very nice. Thumbs up Is the 6th photo blossoms from a fruit tree ?

Marie, you always amaze me..... over all these years I continue to be amazed at the variety in your garden! Gorgeous. I have a purple iris, some orange and Key lime blossoms, some wild violets or something, penstemon are beginning to bloom. Toad Flax and 1 of 12 Icelandic Poppies have given me a bloom. I think I need to look much closer tomorrow!

Marie, everything looks wonderful!!!!!

My oxalis is growing but I just don't get enough sun to force the blooms. I love living on a shoe string while I'm in school but miss two things: Having a dog and gardening.

Linda that petunia is on the less common side. It is an amazing bloom. I will see if I can find the name. The fruit tree bloom is from one of my almond trees.
Susie you need to post some pictures. Especially of the violets. I am hoping that petunia sets seed for me.
The second to the last bloom is a tropaelum from chile. It grows from a corm and is a very delicate vine. The last picture is some kind of minature iris.

Here are some in my garden. I find that I'm heading toward mostly container since Lexie has lived here. She has claimed some of the areas of the beds. Trying to create some barriers so I can plant in the ground.

Part of the patio.

Nice blooms Marie and Susie

This is the first season the petunias have become a problem in my garden....I have a lot of petunias coming up in my walkways and daylily beds.
