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|
