More Blooms in the Garden

This is a photo of the Martha's Vineyard shrub rose that I added to our rock garden last year. I was thrilled that it made it successfully through our cold winter and is now covered with buds that are just starting to bloom. These blooms are miniature size, but there are dozens of them on this one little bush.

This is one of the first cosmos blooms. Eventually I will have a whole garden of these blooms, perfect for natural dyeing. Also, my Rising Sun coreopsis is covered in blooms, and the Moonbeam coreopsis plants won't be far behind. I did manage to successfully split my Moonbeam coreopsis plant from last year, so that was a worthwhile experiment.
