Bloom Day August 2008

August 17, 2008

I’m pretty excited to have this much blooming considering we didn’t get back until June 1. It’s a small but happy garden. There are also cranesbills blooming, the crazy campanula ‘Kent Belle’ sprawling everywhere, nicotiana, zinnias, thyme, mint, a little bee balm, a few I can’t remember names of.

Small is going to get bigger–I went to the Rock Garden Society plant sale today and then to Plantsmen for “just look” for big natives for dry shade. THEN Andrea gave me some things she has to leave behind. It was haul! Now to plan…

    It is a nice display of blooms, considering a late start. Thanks for joining in for bloom day!

    Well, as of yesterday we were probably the only people who didn’t have echinacea! But we’ve remedied that–we bought a fragrant yellow one. Your sedum is beautiful. Will it turn pink? I’m probably the only person who doesn’t like the pinks of sedum.

    Hope the Saturday haul made it home OK. Sorry you couldn’t stick around for lunch. Always lots of good food at the ACNARGS picnic.

    Thanks for stopping by, everyone. Curmudgeon, it stays white, and the leaves are variegated–very pretty. I tend to hate pink but it’s hard to stay away from in the garden.
