I almost forgot about Bloom Day. What happened to the first 14 days of September? I ran out this morning and snapped a few pictures of the blooms in my garden.
Carol at May Dreams Gardens hosts this colorful day on the 15th of each month. See the links to what’s blooming in other gardens here. Thank you Carol!
Sedum Autumn Joy. A common fall plant but a reliable performer in the hot sunny, spot with a ground cover sedum.
One of my favorites, Japanese anemone. I also have a pink one but the rabbits chopped off the bloom stalks before they got a chance to bloom.
The mum Clara Curtis has a long bloom time. It started blooming in August and will go until frost. Here with the ever present coleus.
I don’t grow tansy for the blooms. The fernlike foliage and medicinal aroma make it a keeper in my garden.
Phlox David is looking a little raggedy but still producing blooms (when I remember to deadhead).
The annuals cleome, nasturtium and zinnia add color to the garden.
Fall is a wonderful time in the garden. Now if I could only get September to slow down a bit.
