It’s taken a while for the Canna’s to get with it this year, what with the cold winter, wet cool spring and cool summer (overall, present weekend excluded). But they are finally blooming their bright floppy crepe paper blooms.
I love the bits the blooms leave behind too.
Hibiscus syriacus 'Red Heart'…
The late blooming orange/red Crocosmia.
And the yellow…
Speaking of late, this Euphorbia was blooming in June. This single rebel stem is lagging behind.
The Hydrangea is starting its crazy color fade to pink. I wish it wouldn’t.
I know I keep showing pictures of the Kangaroo Paw.
I’m sorry…I just love it so! And it just keeps on going and going…
Nicotiana is another prolific bloomer.
The Plume poppy has so many interesting stages to its bloom.
A few shots of Sedum spurium 'Dragons Blood' blooming around the garden.
And a duo of Sempervivum, pink…
This little vine, 'Cardinal Climber' Ipomoea multifida, is creeping up and around our gate and dazzling us with its vivid blooms. I wish it weren’t an annual.
And I had to include a picture of the cucumber blossoms. I don’t normally include the veggies but I’m really enjoying these so they’re in.
Happy August bloomday! Visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens to see how others gardens are doing on this hot summer bloomday!
