I haven't participated in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, hosted on the 15th of each month by Carol, of May Dreams Gardens, (mainly because I forget) in a couple of months, but this month I remembered!
Here's my offering for August.
As always, the Rose of Sharon is the star of the show. This one is covered in blooms, which are loved by the bees.
Here's a close up of the Cockscomb that appeared in my last blog post. I love these blooms, the color is so vibrant and the texture is unique.
This new Hamelia patens will hopefully provide some interest for the hummingbirds that come to my hummingbird feeder.
And finally, this little Rudbeckia is another fairly recent addition. I love its sunny blooms.
