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