  1. Hello, beautiful blooms and photos. Love the butterfly too. Happy weekend!

  2. ...WOW, these are great, the last is the winner for me.

  3. Beautiful photos of beautiful blooms. Love the butterfly.

  4. July is a difficult month for southern gardens, but you've got some real beauties there. Happy Bloom Day.

  5. Amazing blooms and brsutifully captured.

  6. Loved the butterfly, loved the wild petunia and the gerbera (the latter don't grow reliably where I live in upstate New York). Surprise lily season isn't quite here yet for us, but it will be. Wonderful quality on the photos, as always. Happy GBBD to you!

  7. I would love to get my hands on that wild petunia. I have seen it in the wild before but not in a garden. Happy GBBD.

  8. July is one of the most colorful months! Happy Bloom Day!

  9. The Pow Wow Wild Berry coneflower is absolutely beautiful. It is my favorite.
    Happy Bloom Day

  10. The photo of the butterfly on the Buddleia is fantastic! I haven't seen many butterflies this year, sadly; I'm hoping they're just off schedule this year. Your hibiscus is gorgeous. Happy Bloom Day!
