I'm happy to announce that I finally have some blooms (other than pansies!!) to share for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.
One of the first things I planted, when I moved in to the house, was a variety of daylilies. I drew a chart and noted where each vartiety was planted. But at some point along the way, that chart has gone missing so now I have no idea which varieties I have and where they are planted. So I'll just enjoy them for what they are, beautiful blooms, and not worry about which daylily they are.
In the back garden, the hollyhock is really putting on a show. I had to cut off a lot of lower leaves that had rust, but that doesn't detract from the beautiful of the plant.
And back in the front garden, the garden mums are budding out, and have been joined by some volunteer sunflowers. (courtesy of the birds)
I used to have a birdfeeder hanging over this bed, but got tired of the birds scratching around underneath it and kicking all the mulch out of the bed and on to the lawn, so I've removed the birdfeeder for now. I may try and find a place for it, away from the edge of the bed, where the birds can sratch around, but not displace all the mulch.
I look forward to sharing more blooms in the future. Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting Garden Blogger's Bloom Day on the 15th of each month.
