Garden Ninebark Hosta JM Viburnum Salvia Echinacea Rose Blooms

The rainy weather seems to want to stay this year. We've had very few clear days, but I managed to get out and get a few photos today. The water has helped but yet it's not been great without sun to help in the growing season.
The Japanese Maple and Hosta Garden

More Hosta, Hydrangea TarDiva and Peony
with a couple buds.

Ninebark Diablo and Center Glow and Salvia May Night
and you can just barely see a Yorkshire Terrier  here.

Another Ninebark Diablo in full bloom here, drooping some from the storms.

Viburnum Autumn Jazz starting to flower.

Double Knockout Roses. I pruned back hard this year on them and then moved them a week or so ago. The one on left is actually blooming, the one on right not looking so good but I have hopes for it.

Salvia Sensation Pink. This is such a pretty one.

The weirdest thing is the fact that I already have a couple of buds on my Echinaceas. Haven't had this as early before. In the background you can see the Yarrow with it's flower head buds. Still hoping this rainy season is almost over and that we don't go straight into drought as we did last year.

Wow, your Ninebark is so stunning in bloom. I loved the foliage before but what a beautiful bush it is when it blooms.Such a beautiful garden bed. I am sure they are loving a little sun and warmth here lately.
