It's Time For "Bloomin Tuesday"

This is one of my very favorite sunflowers, as the sun brightly shines behind it! And it keeps getting taller and taller each day.
Seems like I've got many of my purple and lavendar plants blooming right now.
I've got many of my bulbs in the garden blooming right now. It's always a nice surprise when they pop up out of no where. I love working in my garden, and I'm not sure if I mentioned, I only buy my plants at one place: Johnny Merle's Garden & Nursery. My oldest daughter Brande owns it, and it sits right behind Country Roads. Besides the great plants, succulents, and Annie's Annuals you will find here, I love the garden setting, how its matured over all these years. I put together a little slideshow below so you can visualize what I'm talking about. Brande named the gardens after her Gramma, who was my mom. I know she would be proud!

What fun to have all that behind your store! I love the name. I think names back when were so much cooler than ours. It was always two...not just one and sounded so much more important.
