Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, August 2021

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day and Through My Lens

The northeast corner of Mississippi, USA zone 7b
The 15th of each month is Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Click on the photos to see them at their best.

I have four colors of Rose of Sharon aka Althea, Hibiscus syriacus.

Turk's Cap is just beginning to bloom.

I bought this Lantana a few months ago.

My Phlox plants are near the end of their bloom time, but still pretty.

There are still a few blooms on the Dianthus plants.

The Peace Lilies on my front porch rail are full of blooms.

The Butterflies are loving my Butterfly Bush, Buddleia!

And the Encore Azalea is attracting the Butterflies, too.

After walking all around the yard taking photos, I noticed something orange high up in a tree at the edge of our woods. A Trumpet Creeper, Campsis radicans, a native wildflower vine!

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

I hope you have a Wonderful Week!

To see what is blooming in gardens around the world, visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens

And on Monday, for an interesting variety of photos, visit Through My Lens

  2. It's so nice to be able to enjoy a Trumpet Creeper at the edge of the woods. They are too aggressive for my small yard. Your garden has some very beautiful blooms and visitors for this August.

  4. So nice to see so many butterflies and a surprise to see the Turk's Cap. I used to have that in Alabama but it would barely bloom.
