Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - July 2009

The garden is full of activity -- between the blooms and the buzzes, there are lots of things happening. The bees particularly like the echinacea.

This red monarda was something I took home in the neighborhood plant swap. It was one of the neatest things to watch a hummingbird hover around it for some sweet nectar.

Pretty pink and yellow daylily. There are also pure yellow, orange with red stripes, double orange and red, and a deep burgundy with yellow strip.

Meadow Rue -- some of the smallest flowers in the yard, but some of the tallest.

The black-eyed susans are starting to open. Many were smashed in the Sweet Gum saga, but there should still be a good show.

And finally some beautiful light purple phlox -- huge blooms that seem to have doubled in the past year. I have some that are darker pink and white ones as well. These are the most prolific near the patio.

Happy Bloom Day and many more blooms throughout July!

Very nice indeed. I love phlox too, it is prolific and beats the heat and smells good too. Don't have that purple one yet, though. Must go looking. . .

Off to see if Meadow Rue can be grown in my neck of Zone 5...

Kristy, your blossoms are beautiful. If you're wondering, the pink daylily looks like 'Catherine Woodbury.' Can't beat that lovely soft shell pink. One of my favorites. Thanks for sharing your garden! ~~Rhonda

I must read about "the sweetgum saga"!

Great pictures. My monarda has been behaving itself nicely this year.
