For Lucy and More

First, I wish to thank Lucy for her patience with me. The Beebalm flower is the red one. This is not the best picture I have but it's the only one I could find in my files, quickly. Mine are not in bloom yet, so this is last summer's glory.
Does this shot look more familiar, Lucy. It is the Beebalm, so far, this year and looks just like your mystery plant. I hope I did not lead you astray.
My Cinnamon Fern next to more of last summer's Beebalm, looking healthy.

The mix of Calibrachera are gorgeous swaying in the breeze. The hummingbirds seem to really love these. I know I do.

Once again, I'm excited about the Quince tree blooming after all these years. The poor thing has been moved several times.

And last, but not least, the sunrise this morning was over-hovered by some dark clouds again. It looks as tho we are going to get a mix of rain showers again for the next week. Let's do hope for at least a sunny weekend. I still have some garden to get in.
I thank you all for stopping by. Have yourselves a safe, warm-hearted weekend. I leave you with a few words once said by
~~~Harry James~~~

Three thing in human life is important.

The first is to be kind.
The second is to be kind.
The third is to be kind.

(Thanks to The Fishing Guy for letting me pass this on.)

Thanks Dar. The strange part of it is those leaves look identical to what I have. I will keep posting as it changes and we will see what we come up with> You tried and who knows what this will turn out to be. Keeps it interesting.

My bee balm, Monarda is in full bloom here...when it finishes I will deadhead and have a second flush of blooms....

Lucy said...

Those flowers are so plentiful and beautiful. After such a tough winter I bet it feels good when the flowers start to open.

Thank you so much for the advice on the Fuschia. I am going to try to save them. One plant looked good on one side so I cut the other side back And will see if we can save it. I cut them off on the other one. It was unbelievably hot and they were looking a little wilted before I tried to fix??? them.I love your flowers.

We are getting rain, had hail and I am going to set my fushia baskets out there and check my mystery plant. I think it is getting close to blooming.
