It’s Garden Bloggers’ Bloom day again, the creation of Carol over at May Dreams Gardens. The days are growing shorter and the blossoms fewer this time of year, but there still is beauty in the garden. I hope you enjoy these pictures from our little corner of the world!

And for the pièce de ré·sis·tance!
I hope you are still finding some things to ooh and aah over in your garden before we turn the corner and head straight into winter. Hopefully we’ll have one more Bloom Day Post before then!
September 15th already! The leaves are starting to turn here and there’s a chill in the air. It’s all a little early for us, and I’m afraid the drought we’ve been experiencing is going to dull the autumn color. But fear not, for it’s Bloom Day, and there are many beautiful things to see in the meadow and the nursery. So without further ado, may I present the floral faces from my garden!
Remember to click on the photos for a closer look!
Time once again for Bloom day, and that means a trip outside with the camera, and a look at some wonderfully cheerful blossoms. Enjoy!
Ruffled Apricot daylily (Hemerocallis ‘Ruffled Apricot’) is an impressive re-bloomer, and it’s fragrant!
Prairie Coneflower (Ratibita pinnata) is an elegant native, frequently visited by our pollinators.
Mardi Gras Helen’s flower (Helenium ‘Mardi Gras’) Is a favorite of mine since first using it several years ago. Its blossoms are a blend of yellow, orange and red.
Floristan White Gayfeather (Liatris spicata ‘Floristan White’) sports a very pretty white spike atop very attractive foliage.
My favorite of all the new Echinacea introductions, is Red Knee High (Echinacea purpurea ‘Red Knee High’). Its compact habit and deep magenta blossoms make it a welcome addition in our garden!
Another new and welcome introduction, is Katherine Phlox (Phlox paniculata ‘Katherine’). Highly resistant to powdery mildew, long blooming and a beautiful lavender blossom with a white eye. We will be enjoying this one for years to come!
Thunder and Lightning Knautia (Knautia macedonica ‘Thunder and Lightning) is an amazing color combo. Deep magenta pin cushions over green and cream variegated foliage. WOW!
Deep red with a yellow throat, Chicago Apache daylily (Hemerocallis ‘Chicago Apache’) is visible from all over the yard!
Don’t stop now, head on over to May Dreams Gardens and see what other Garden Bloggers are raving about, but before you do, please leave a comment!
We have a few friends showing their faces this fine May morning, some in the ground and some in containers. I hope you enjoy these beauties as much as we, and when your done here remember to stop by May Dreams Gardens to see many more bloggers fine blooms!
It’s Tax Day, and for most, a day of dread. What better way to brighten up one’s spirits, then with a Bloom Day post. It’s been a few months since we have been able to participate, but the snows have long since melted, the temperatures are climbing, and some welcome faces are starting to show themselves once again. Come and see what blooming at our house, and I hope it brightens your Tax Day!
Now please stop over at May Dreams Gardens To see what’s blooming there and in the many other Bloom Day bloggers gardens!
