Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day- September 2013

It’s Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day! I was away in August so I missed it and it feels great to be getting back on track.  As I wandered through the garden this morning I was struck by how much work I could do to introduce late summer plants. I think that I need to spend a good amount of time today reading the other Bloom Day posts for ideas! Here’s what I found today:

Lavender making a small comebackThe lavender is making a small comeback.

IMG_3128as are volunteer morning glories and dill.
IMG_3132Of course I have a few zinnias..IMG_3134

IMG_3140 I always stick a weed in here somewhere. Some of them are just so pretty that I can’t help it.

IMG_3147Black-eyed susan hanging in there. They have suffered in the drought.

IMG_3152Juniper… does this count? It’s so pretty, I can’t help but include it.

IMG_3154Knock-out roses that we added recently. Everyone talks about how easy these are to grow and I absolutely agree. If your a timid rose grower this is a nice way to get started.

It wouldn’t be September without chrysanthemum.

Can’t wait to read the other garden blogs! Be sure to check them out at May Dreams Gardens.

Enjoy Everything!

  2. Everything is looking good! I just love zinnias, but I am scared to death of growing mint. It really takes over at my house.

    I like your peachy zinnia, one of my favorite colors. The purple morning glories are pretty, too.
