Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – June 2009

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

P6131462 P6131461

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.

    Very nice photos, and a lovely rose. Although I’m not usually an orange fan, that Hawkweed really caught my eye – it was gorgeous.

  3. Dreamybee says:

    Beautiful! I especially like that blanket flower and your Whoville flower!

  4. Stunning photos, with my absolute favourite being the orange hawkbit. It may be a weed, but what colours!

    I just realized that quite a few blogs aren’t coming through. Glad I found yours today. The flowers are beautiful. I just love the penstemon. The roses and everything else looks great!

    Love that last pic. Gardens are meant to be enjoyed.

  7. Lovely pictures – the David Autin rose \”Othello\” is a real stunner!
    My posts on the Turning Year have not been picked up on Blotanical either – so frustrating.
