My last few postings haven’t been posted on Blotanical for some unknown reason. I know Stuart is working on the problem, so while you are here enjoying my Bloom Day photos, hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens, please feel free browse back and take a look at those as well. Thanks.
My last bearded iris.
orange hawkweed – is no longer with us…it was growing in the lawn and was mowed down Sunday evening. It was pretty while it lasted.
dianthus and friend
my beautiful David Austin rose – “Othello” just as it’s opening
perennial geranium in a very delicate pink
just finishing up – my Jeanne Lajoie miniature rose
Oxeye daisies and milkweed at my Hummingbird/Butterfly garden at one of the branch libraries
large white campanula – bellflowers
Baptisia australis – false blue indigo
knautia – pincushion flower
Now, doesn’t this look like the flower from Horton Hears a Who? Watch out, Who-ville here comes a giant bee!
Tradescantia virginiana – Spiderwort
The first Blanket flower or Gaillardia of the season
a pink penstemon
The butterfly garden – despite the fact that it still needs drastic weeding, is enjoyed by library visitors.
