Bloomday for August is here. The weather has been mostly rainy and cold, what a miserable summer. My garden has less flowers than it probably should.. I didn't go out much to tend things due to the rain and very soggy ground.
So.. first we have the lovely Dark Lady on a rare sunshiney day.
Listen to the European Robin, press play!
There are a few robins that visit my garden, cheeky little birds! Tiny, but very tough little creatures.
Poppy, nigella, geranium, and evening primrose.
Nasturtiums are growing everywhere! I'm happy for that, they don't have a care in the world where they grow. I like to use the flowers in my salads and pasta dishes.
Impatiens looking like miniature roses.
A pelargonium from my Mom's garden, long ago.
The only sweet pea that grew for me this year.
Wild fuchsia, and Tinkerbelle
Honeysuckle is still looking wonderful
William Morris is starting a new flush of flowers
Malva, borage, rose-scented geranium, stock, and oregano
A couple of pale yellow hollyhocks have decided to grow in the front garden. No idea how they got here, but I'm loving them! I want lots more in different colors next summer!
Whites.. eschscholzia, feverfew, allysum, and chamomile
a few violas still looking cute
Welsh poppies (from seeds collected in the Welsh mountains), and verbena.
If you'd like to participate in the monthly Bloom Day, do up a post about all the flowers blooming on the 15th of each month, then visit May Dreams Gardens and leave a link.
