I’m running seven hours behind on Bloom Day! Oh no! I certainly hope Carol at May Dreams will forgive me. I’ve been so busy I just absolutely forgot until Phillip reminded me in the wee hours of the evening last night. So here are some blooms from the garden.
The Blackberry lily has finally decided to bloom and Jamie is so excited about it. He’s been waiting so patiently to see it. Here’s his reward.
The Vitex is still blooming. I just couldn’t resist posting this picture with the Butterfly. How many miles do you suppose these tattered little wings have flown? He wasn’t the least bit shy either.
I am absolutely IN LOVE with Joe-Pye Weed. It’s the prettiest thing I’ve seen in a long time. The Bees just love it! Surprisingly I haven’t seen a lot of butterflies hanging around it.
I think we will finish up with four of the five Crepe Myrtles we have. The ‘Tonto’ hasn’t started to bloom yet. I was really hoping to post all five of them at the same time. Unfortunately, ‘Tonto has decided to be fashionably late to the party.
