Every gardener and every garden blogger has lamented this summer's high temperatures and lack of rain. I certainly have! But despite these 2 major setbacks, the flowers carry on, brave souls!!
So here's what's blooming in my garden on August 15th Garden Blogger's Bloom Day:
Asiatic lily 'Strawberry and Cream'
Black-Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta)
Cream coloured shrub rose (blooming for a second time around)
Beautiful wine-coloured Scabiosa that I grew from seed. Since the package was labelled Imperial Giants Mixed, most are a pale mauve but one bloomed this fabulous burgundy colour.
The oakleaf hydrangea is already turning from pink to bronze
Coral bells are blooming for a second time…..
….as is the 'Anthony Waterer' Spirea.
Last but not least is the Morning Glory on the back fence.
