It's Garden Blogger Bloom Day! On the 15th of each month, we garden bloggers like to show off what's blooming and growing in our gardens. Here on Long Island, zone 7, things are blooming all over and some still recovering from my sour mulch disaster. Read more about that here.
Below are a few favorites from my garden this month:
Hemerocallis Purple d'Oro
This lovely purple daylily has a bright yellow center and crinkled edges on the petals.
Thankfully these chartreuse colored coral bells are recovering from the mulch disaster. The wispy pink blooms held above the bright foliage brightens up this shady spot under the viburnum.
Courtesy of my four budding artists, I acquired some yard art for my garden and nestled them among the variegated Liriope.
Even though the flowers have faded from the viburnum shrubs, the red berries have started to take form and look like subtle flowers themselves.
The Endless Summer hydrangeas were not too badly affected by this winter's bitter cold and are now pushing out beautiful blue blooms, some tinged with purple.
My sea of Black-eyed Susans are on the cusp of blooming.
I love their form contrast to the tall, wispy Russian Sage and color contrast to the bright pink Echinacea.
So there you go! My garden in July. What's blooming in your garden? Do you have any of the same plants? I'd love to hear from you!
Many thanks to Carol over at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this month's GBBD!
