Garden Bloggers Bloom Day August 2014

I was hoping to get this done before my in-laws got up this morning but I didn't get it done quite fast enough so you'll have to excuse the poorer quality of plant identification. It's partly that I don't have time to check my plant inventory database and partly I need coffee.

Hope you enjoy the pictures. If there's something you're really curious about put in a comment and I'll try to get to it next week when we don't have company (I have a tomato garden post planned, too, I didn't miss the questions about my tomato harvest this week!).

The Agastache are almost done but the bees are still finding some food. 

Reblooming on an Asclepias 

Buddleias are peaking 

Technically not a bloom but this fern is in reproduction mode 

Seldom is the wind still enough to photograph Gaura so I'm really thrilled with these photos 

The trellis is there to prevent the dogs from digging up the Joe Pye Weed before it gets established 

The bees and I are both happy with the meadow rue this year. It's the second year and it's much stronger and more floriferous. 

I usually only post houseplant blooms during the winter but my snake plant is very happy to be outside

Society garlic 

We tend to forget them but yes, grasses do bloom.

Thanks to Carol at May Dreams for this meme


  1. We have many of the same blooms showing off right now and I just noticed my grasses were beginning to bloom this week...summer is flying. I really like the orange flower.

  2. I have never seen a MIL tongue bloom like this. I am glad you posted it. The rest of your blooms are quite pretty too. Happy GBBD.
