Well look at that, another Garden Bloggers Bloomday has rolled around (thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for keeping the tradition alive). I'm feeling kind of detached from the garden right now. It's been wet, then cold, and I've been busy. All the better to have a reason to stroll and look for flowers right? I am thrilled with the consistent bloom output of Passiflora 'Amethyst Jewel', this plant is a winner.
Passiflora 'Arctic Queen' has been a little less generous with the flowers, but when they do happen, vavoom!
Persicaria microcephala ‘Red Dragon’ has been blooming for awhile now, I just thought to snap a photo and include it in the bloomday show.
Anemone 'Honorine Jobert' finally got started.
Cyclamen hederifolium, such a tiny little thing.
Leonotis leonurus, winding down.
Abutilon megapotamicum 'Paisley'
Clematis tibetana var. vernayi, don't you just wish you could pinch those thick petals? It feels just as good as you would guess it does.
Clematis tibetana var. vernayi and Schefflera delavayi
Mahonia eurybracteata 'Soft Caress'
This one caught me by surprise, Impatiens omeiana isn't typically a fall bloomer, at least not in my garden.
Rosemary, the everblooming.
And finally, Knautia macedonica, which has put on quite the show this year. What's blooming in your October garden?
