July Bloom Day
Many thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens who invites gardening bloggers to post photos of what's blooming in their gardens on the 15th of each month.
As I strolled out to my parched garden this evening, which is taking a Herculian effort to keep it watered nowadays, I was surprised at the number of blooms I found. Not a lot mind you, but anything that can bloom in this hothouse is worth mentioning.
The lily at the top of the page is "Star Gazer." I don't know the name of this one -
|A Pee Gee hydrangea -|
|A red salvia|
|Phlox and shasta daisies (the background foliage is Harry Lauder's Walking Stick and Banana 'Musa Basjoo')|
|Lantana 'Pink Caprice'|
|Lantana 'Miss Huff' snubs her nose at those who say that pink and orange don't mix!|
|A container with coleus and creeping wire vine (Muehlenbeckia axillaris).|
|The late evening sun illuminates Miscanthus sinensus 'Adagio'|
|The orange berries of Italian Arum|
|Not quite ready for Bloom Day, but close, Crinum Lily|
