For both Garden Bloggers Bloom Day and Wednesday Vignette, which this week fall on the same day, I offer both a smattering of current blooms and a series of vignettes. Many months, bloggers, me included, use Bloom Day to catalog what blooms when, to contrast and compare what is blooming this year with what has bloomed in past years. Of course, neurotic person that I am, I worry that can too often deteriorate into a tediously long post full of boring pictures that have appeared over and over.
So, here you go. Hopefully, you won't be bored.
|One of these is Woodlander's Hardy, but I don't know if it's this one...|
|Or this one...|
|When I redid the front garden, I added lots of lilies with this color scheme, but I promptly forgot all their names|
|I need more species milkweed|
|Lobelia tupa is so alien, it looks like a painting of a flower|
|Tradescantia 'Bilberry Ice'|
|Alstroemeria and bug with color-matched thorax|
|Eremurus -- note the bottom of the bloom, burnt to a crisp after our recent heat wave|
