Good glory in the morning on these August days. Things are looking a little fresher after the 2-1/2 inches of rain we had this past weekend. And another inch last night. At first I didn’t think I had much in bloom – and then I took another look.
I didn’t expect the aconite would be embracing the Moth Light hydrangea – or vice versa.
I bought a bag of acidanthra bulbs on a whim and them forgot where I planted them, and even that I had planted them
Arizona Sun Gaillardia are doing well – after a slow start – and so are the Oranges and Lemons gaillardias in the other bed.
The Switzerland shasta daisies are really just about gone. Deadheading needed.
Other plants in bloom: an occasional rose, Cana agastache, bee balm, daylilies, phlox, Black Beauty lilies (much smaller this year I think because of the drought), impatiens, and pots of million bells, petunias and fuschia. Tigridia bulbs in pots also still putting out a bloom a day.
For views of what is blooming in other gardens across our great land visit Carol, our host, at May Dreams Gardens.
