July Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day

“July Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana 

Thanks to Carol of May Dreams Gardens for coming up with GBBD.  This is the day (15th of the month) in which we post everything which is blooming in our gardens.

Some of the blooms I have this month are hosta, hibiscus, plumbago, hydrangea, daylilies, gladiolus, asters, ruellea, roses, torenia, salvia, cashmere bouquet, begonia, canna, wedelia, lantana, peace lily, ageratum, million bells, oleander, crapemytrle trees, agapanthus, yellow jessamine, and rain lilies.

    Thanks, Shelia. I chased that butterfly all over the yard.

    Yes, Nancy, you must join in GBBD. I like it because it does remind us to keep a record of what is blooming in our gardens every month.

    We had the same rainlily blooming yesterday. What is “cashmere bouquet” and what is that pink rose in the penultimate photograph?

    Cashmere bouquet is clerodendrun bungei. I wrote about it earlier this year on this post https://alwaysgrowing.wordpress.com/2008/05/25/pretty-in-pink/

    The rose is Blushing Knockout. It is a softer pink than Pink Knockout.

    Sorry I didn’t label the photos, but I was having problems uploading photos last night and frustration won out.

    That is a great picture of a butterfly on that flower. You commented that you chased it around the yard to get that picture. That must have been quite a sight! I really like that last flower pictured, is it one of the spider-type daylilies?

    Thanks for joining in for bloom day!

    Thanks, Carol. Getting that picture was a challenge. The daylily pictured is originally from my mom’s garden. She got it from a neighbor a long time ago – probably in the ’60’s, so I am not sure what it is called. Since I have not grown the spider-type, I am not sure it is one, but it does looks like it could be one or maybe an early version of that type.
