Yay – a blooming post!! I haven’t been out in the garden as much this week with all the new house stuff. I need to do a what’s blooming post at the new place, but I have to admit that I have not really explored a whole lot in the back yard in depth. There isn’t much in bloom there, but there are some keeper plants. However, this is my current flower bed:
The sedum are starting to color up a little more.
I have had a large swallowtail visiting the butterfly bush this week.
That’s the neighborhood waste management flower in bloom in the background, too
The birds at my feeder throw seed everywhere. They are messy buggers. A surprise sunflower popped up by the butterfly bush several feet away.
Surprise flowers are fun! I also have more blooms on the delphiniums this week:
I know someone who is going to have a lot of these in her new gardens
My rose bushes are going through a small flush of blooms now:
You can tell the end of summer is approaching because now my lirope are blooming:
As busy as I am right now, I still take the time to smell the roses! My stress relief.
