Garden Party!

There's a garden party going on over at Today's Lessons (follow the link to see some great photos of other bloggers' gardens), and I thought I would take part as well. Here are a few of the latest photos from around the garden:

White Dahlia


White Cosmos and Alyssum

Anyone know what this is? It just showed up this week. I thought it was a balloon flower, but it doesn't seem to be.

(Update: General consensus seems to be that it is indeed a balloon flower!)


To see some other shots of our garden click here, here, here, here, and here (there are others scattered around, but I'll leave you with these!). To see some neat pictures that we've taken of the lifecycle of the ladybugs in our garden, follow this link to our homeschooling blog.

Sure looks like a balloon flower to me! How do you know it's not?

I think I'm going to have to agree with you on that one - I just did a Google search for blue balloon flowers, and they look the same. I guess I didn't think it was one because the plant doesn't look the same as the white ones that I have, and I didn't plant any blue ones - I love garden surprises!
Thanks for the nice write-up on your site!
