Five things I learned from reading all the Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day posts from yesterday and today.
5. Black-eyed Susan's (Rudbeckia) are reliable in all kinds of climates and weather conditions.
4. I'm not only gardener who worried that there weren't enough new blooms in their garden for August. August needs help from long-blooming plants and re-bloomers. August is why we need annuals in the garden.
3. Everyone is suffering from some kind of weather woes... too wet, too dry, too hot all over the place.
2. I should have taken notes about the new flowers I read about and who posted about them. I know I saw some new flowers I want to try! What were they? Who posted about them?
1. No matter how many times you walk around your garden noting all the blooms, just after you post about what is blooming in your garden you'll find a bloom that you forgot about, a new flower will suddenly bloom, or you'll find a picture of a flower you meant to include but didn't.
I love green flowers and can't believe I didn't post a picture of my green zinnias! That's 'Giant Lime' pictured above. A big round ball of green flower petals, isn't it?
