Not that I'm complaining...I like it hot!
And some of our blogging friends are experiencing an extended heat wave, not to be believed!
Our hearts are with you guys! We pray for cooling thunder showers to break the wave!
So this week I'm joining in to the Cottage Flora Thursdays link up
and May Dreams Gardens (G.B.B.D) Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.
Here's whats blooming in my yard...
This first photo is deceiving, the bloom on this Abutilon is only 1-1 1/2" ,
but its a beauty planted in this next pot.
Next up: Daylilies:
Hydrangeas that are in part shade are not suffering, but the full sun day ones ( except for Annabelle) are weepy because of the high temps.
I have shown this bird house in a past post, but now its really blooming,
so I'll show it again, you don't mind- do you?
Echinaceas bring the Goldfinches, bees, butterflys and hummingbirds
cone flowers or they are just growing that way. They are growing in different gardens in the yard.
'Provence' lavender is one of the lavenders I grow. I also love 'Hidcote' and 'Munstead'.
This is the cultivar most used in France for oils and perfumes.
I have encircled a Hydrangea Piniculata tree form with 12 or so lavender plants. The bees become drunk with nectar and just hang so perfectly still on the lavender wands, that you can pet them.
I will post a photo when the tree comes into bloom.
So that't whats bloomin in my yard...
What's blooming where you are?
Hope everyone is staying cool!
