Garden Blogger's Bloom Day September 15, 2014

On the 15th of each month, garden bloggers around the globe post photos of flowers in bloom in our backyards. What a wonderful way to share the beauty of the world around us! Thanks to May Dreams Gardens for bringing us together, virtually, each month!

It's hard to believe summer's on the wane already, but with night time temperatures reaching the 50's, we're seeing evidence of fall already. Pollinators need plenty of nectar sources this time of year. As I ride my bike and hike local trails, I'm reminded of the native plants NOT growing in my garden, and I wonder if I have space for just a little more goldenrod, aster, and Joe-pye weed. Here's a snapshot of what's in bloom in my backyard:

Cheloni lyonii 'Hot Lips'

Salvia nemerosa 'Snow Hill'

Dandelion (why not?)

Dianthus 'Fire Witch'

Geranium 'Rozeann'


Zinnia elegans 'Thumbelina'

Symphiotrichum novae angliae (New England Aster)

Phaseolus vulgaris 'Purple Pod' 
Thumbergia alata (black-eyed Susan vine)

Lantana camara 'Sunset'

Tropaeolum majus 'Jewel Mix' (nasturtium)

Solidago (goldenrod)

Sedum 'Autumn Joy'
