Thanks to Carol of May Dreams Garden for coming up with the idea of posting what is blooming in our gardens on the 15th of the month.  It is a good idea to take time to notice and enjoy what is doing well in our gardens.

    Thanks, Brenda. When I bought those corms, they were supposed to be yellow, and, at first, I was disappointed they were mislabled. Now, they are my favorite glad.

    Isn’t it amazing how Coral Nymph and plumbago can look cool and fresh in hot summer if they get just a little shade? Maybe next year I’ll remember to get a few gladiolus bulbs.
    Happy Blooming, Jan!
