Bloomers in Tahoe

While vacationing in Lake Tahoe I found some pretty bloomers!

Single Hollyhocks-I love this vibrant burgundy red.

This is a beautiful planter of coral dahlias with the darker burgundy foliage! Wish I could grow these at home.

Don't you love this sign?

Black eyed Susan -They thrive here and are blooming everywhere.

This is a view of one of the historical gardens at the the Tallac Historical State Park at South Lake Tahoe. The site is on the shores of the lake and has wonderful views of the lake and mountains.

This is a view from the gardens looking back towards the lake. I love the red bee balm--look at the size of it-a good 4-1/2 feet tall!

This little dianthus is a bright fuchsia pink and really stands out!

These are some wonderful rustic flower box planters at the Baldwin House filled with coral pink geraniums. I think they are the perfect compliment to the log cabin style of the home -originally built in 1921.

Make sure you visit Susan for all the Outdoor Wednesday posts! Have a great hump day!
