Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day and a Series of Wednesday Vignettes

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

Himalayan honeysuckle

Tradescantia 'Bilberry Ice'

Cupid's Dart

Alstroemeria and bug with color-matched thorax

Volunteer foxglove

Eremurus -- note the bottom of the bloom, burnt to a crisp after our recent heat wave
