We've had some good hard rain, the nights are turning cooler but the warm breezy (non-humid) days we've had lately have been the best of the summer!!! Today is Garden Blogger's Bloom Day and I still have quite a bit happening in my garden. The spotlight is on repeat-bloomers and annuals.
White phlox are still (barely) hanging on
The ornamental kale plants that I grew from seed are really huge
The shrub rose beside the deck is blooming again: apricot buds turning into….
The sedum is turning pink and the bees are flocking to them
Weigela is in bloom again
The 'Fairy' rose is loaded with its fall blossoms
Black Eyed Susans are not prepared to wilt just yet
The rain helped the pink snapdragons come back
Feather Reed Grass 'Karl Foerster' waves gently in the wind
The big shrub rose is now full of hips
One or two Rose of Sharon blossoms are tucked in behind branches
Scabiosa that I grew from seed is everywhere
Browallia benefitted from its July haircut and fertilizer
My friend gave me a Gerbera daisy, which has bloomed again since I planted it
And we have lots and lots (and lots!) of home grown tomatoes!!
