|Rosa 'Carefree Beauty'|
The cooler weather has resulted in another unprecedented performance.
|Talinum paniculatum (jewels of Opar) blooming with Laythrus odoratus|
|The pink Phlox paniculata is a new addition to the border this year, alongside P. paniculata 'Nicky', Geranium 'Blogold' (Blue Sunrise™) and 'Bob's Blunder', with a Viola under there somewhere,|
This lovely weather has caused a banner year of blooming for Lycoris squamigera (naked ladies, etc.).
Also last year, this Lobelia 'Monet Moment' was just pitiful.
|Geranium 'Gerwat' (Rozanne™), Lobelia 'Monet Moment', and Phlox paniculata 'Laura'|
|Lilium 'Black Beauty'|
The native prairie plants are having their moment in the sun.
There are more Liatris in the Nanoprairie, but it is now dominated by the Joe Pye weed.
|Eutrochium dubium (Eupatorium) 'Phantom' (Joe Pye weed), towers over Echinacea purpurea, Phlox paniculata 'David', Lobularia maritima, and Sporabolus heteroleptis (prairie dropseed).|
That's all for this month, but I would be remiss if I did not mention that today is my blogaversary. Life has pulled me away from the blog this summer, but I still have posts to write, and photos to post.
I would also be remiss if I did not thank Carol, of May Dreams Gardens, for hosting Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. So, thank you, Carol!
