It’s another Bloomin’ Tuesday and this week I have some yellow and blueish purple blooms to show you. My favorite color combinations in the garden. :)
I’m just so thankful to have blooms in the garden this month, August can be a beast. But we’ve been having some occasional rain showers which has perked things up a bit. The Balloon Flower bloom was a surprise since they finished up their flush in June. My Green Coneflowers or Rudbeckia laciniata are open now and I love their green center that changes color with age. Solidago is getting ready to come into full flush. I could of sworn this cultivar was ‘Fireworks’ but after seeing that variety in other gardens I’m not so sure what mine is now. Society Garlic has been blooming on and off since the end of June. This is the second season for it in the garden and I really like it. Couldn’t imagine my beds without this fabulous Lantana ‘Miss Huff’. The butterflies and hummers have been flocking to her this summer. Catmint is a new addition that is still sitting in it’s nursery pot on the patio. Hope to have it planted next month. Last but not least is these yellow and hot pink Four o’ Clocks. Their a bit of a weed in my garden sometimes with the abundance of seeds they drop. But I love how you can have pink, yellow and mixed all on one plant.
