Happy Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day!
Things are cooking along in our garden…
Here’s what’s blooming…
Salmon pink geranium
There’s a theme here…
Most of the front yard is pink this year. I’m just in this very pink place and I’m loving it!
I’d like to post some broader photos but I’m not feeling quite that brave.
There’s gaps and paint that needs some work. Maybe we’ll get to that soon.
We have several knockout rose bushes which will bloom all summer long, no painting needed…
I just planted this clump of daisies that I won at Garden Club in June. They’re on their second bloom.
I believe that this is obedient plant, or a volunteer foxglove? We’ve discussed this other years and I’m quite sure that the consensus was obedient plant.
Lovage flower, not too lovely, but interesting..
This is the very first purple coneflower, and a friend 🙂
The beginning of the black-eyed Susan and day lilies…
Liatris, just getting started..
One of my favorite day lilies
I believe that this is a very old type of rudbekia. It’s originally from the Derby Garden at the Salem Maritime National Historic Site, but I’ve had it for years.
Much newer pink gaura
and Peach Blossom Blanket flower..
We’ve been selling lots of blanket flower at my workplace so I had to plant some and I’m enjoying it. It seems to be very tolerant of changes in temperature and humidity and it’s very compact and low growing, so perfect at the front of a bed. I’ll keep you posted as the summer goes on.
What’s blooming in your garden? Be sure to visit May Dreams Gardens and check out the links to gardens all over the world. It’s so much fun to look around from there!
Take care and enjoy!
Thanks Arthur 😊
It’s certainly beautiful and colorful at your house – good combination. 🙂 I noticed the phlox just started this week, but we need rain so badly. I have noticed a few plants are browning out because I normally don’t water established perennials. I may have to break that rule this year. 🙂
Everything looks great, Michele!
I’d be tempted to buy far too much if I worked with plants. Your garden is looking wonderful Michele.
