Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day – August 15, 2019

Caardinal Plant

Cardinal plant, silver artemesia and helenium

It’s been quite a year in the garden here in western Massachusetts. A long wet spring has led to a hot dry summer. I dug out our sprinkler and put it to  use. The butterflies and bees have been visiting the cardinal plants which made me happyl

Aesclepius

Aesclepius for the Monarchs

The Aesclepius is  right next to the cardinal flowers and they are very  good friends.

Rudbeckia, daylilies and phlox

The daylilies are nearly done in this bed but the rudbeckia and phlox will get us through the summer.

The Japanese anemone, right in back of the daylilies and next to the phlox is just beginning  to bloom. The bees are happy.

Echinacea bee balm and daylilies

Cone flower, bee balm, daylilies on the South Hellstrip.

My neighbors across the street are still enjoying this floriferous hellstrip – otherwise known as the Tree Belt. No tree, but lots of pollinator flowers.

Folksinger rose

Time to celebrate Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day!  The Folksinger rose is having a very good year. It will stand  in for the other roses that are still modestly blooming. I think it is too hot and dry, even with watering, to have them do their best.

There are other blooms, bits of coreopsis, yarrow, honeysuckle, and meadow rue still blooming. The three hydrangeas are coming into full  bloom.  Our South Border is quite a beautiful jungle.  I thank Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for showing how to share our gardens all across our great land.  Happy Bloom Day to you all.
