Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day and Blog Action Day on October 15th

Mid-October, and now it gets interesting to see who has what new blooms in their fall garden. Who has carefully planned to have something new as the season ends, like these toad lilies (Tricyrtis sp.) which are now blooming in my garden?

Even if you have old flowers still blooming, we would love to have you join us in posting what is blooming in your garden on Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day on the 15th of every month. Once you've posted about your blooms, just leave a comment here on my Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day post so everyone can find you. That's all there is to it.

Like many bloggers, I also plan to post about the environment for Blog Action Day, which is also on October 15th. How to manage this?

-You could post about your blooms on the 14th and make it look like the post was done on the 15th. That's what I plan to do, but I generally do that anyway to get my bloom day post out early enough for any other early posters to leave a comment. (Don't tell anyone!)

- You could do a combined post on the 15th about the blooms in your garden and the environment you've created in your little corner of the world.

- You could do two posts on one day, unless that's against your own blogging principles.

- You could post about your blooms a day late. There are always a few people who are traveling or busy or forgetful who post about their blooms on the 16th.

Rain or shine, snow or sleet, hot or cold, cool or warm or even on Blog Action Day, Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day goes on the 15th of each month. I hope you can join us!

  1. My toad lilies are blooming too, though they are still in the pot. I am afraid to plant them until we get some moisture. How is the mole hunting going? Do you need to borrow my pitch fork yet? ;)

  2. Thank you for mentioning Blog Action Day; I wouldn't have known otherwise. I've just started a gardening blog at Hope you would like to add it to your list of blogs as I would like to add May Dreams to my list.

  3. Thanks for reminding me about both :-) I'm one of those forgetful bloggers....

  4. Carol: I was wondering as I was wandering this morning about bloom day! Thanks for that reminder.

  5. Carol, you are so very organized to always get your Bloom Day post done--even a day early! It usually slips right by me until I read all the blog entries about it. Making a sticky note now...

  6. Vonlafin... I haven't trapped the mole yet. Pitchfork? I might consider it if I actually saw the thing moving underground.

    Chookie... Welcome and I will visit your blog soon!

    Colleen... Your welcome!

    Layanee... Wondering as you were wandering about your garden, no doubt.

    Robin(Bumblebee)...Thanks, I try to remember and stay organized. Isn't that they key to sanity?

    Thanks all for the kind words and comments.

Comments are to a blog what flowers are to a garden. Sow your thoughts here and may all your comments multiply as blooms in your garden.

Though there is never enough time to respond to each comment individually these days, please know that I do read and love each one and will try to reciprocate on your blog.

By the way, if you are leaving a comment just so you can include a link to your business site, the garden fairies will find it and compost it!
