Deliciously fragrant brugmansia--this one a passalong from a friend at the botanical garden
As I haven't made it home before dark at all this week (a combination of too much work, and too little daylight in the early fall) I didn't get a chance to take any pictures for today's Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, hosted by Carol of May Dreams Gardens.
'Acapulco' agastache, bleached by camera flash, fronting blue-foliaged sea kale. Lurking in the depths behind is an oakleaf hydrangea.
I have a mental note of all of the flowers that are blooming here, though, so I'm posting a list... along with a couple of (terrible quality) nighttime shots of blooming flowers, and two bonus "garden action" shots at the end:
Shrubs, Grasses, Vines & Perennials: 'Albury Purple' St. John's wort, 'Rotstrahlbusch' switchgrass, lonicera sempervirens, Russian sage, 'Grosso' lavender, one lone Japanese anemone, 'Acapulco' agastache in two colors, 'Hameln' pennisetum, 3 kinds of oregano, peppermint, spearmint, and hardy plumbago (yes, still!)
Vegetables, Annuals, Tropicals: bronze fennel, 'Bonfire' begonia, passalong brugmansia, purple heart, yellow snapdragons, 'Black & Blue' salvia, 'Lady in Red' salvia, 'Hopi Red Dye' amaranth, portulacas, passionflower vine, 'Vista Purple' salvia, various basils, 'Dragonwing' begonia
Not much... not by my usual September garden standards! So I'll supplement my list with a couple of bonus "garden action shots":
Yes, they are doing what you think they're doing.
And afterward, the one on the right looked rather embarrassed at having been caught in the act:
Hope you all have an exciting, adventurous, Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!
