Fortunately, Carol of May Dreams Gardens never forgets and she hosts this meme every month. Thank you, Carol.
Now let's see what, if anything, I can find blooming in my zone 9a garden this month.
|The coral vine is beginning its bloom right on schedule.|
|The white Texas Star (swamp) hibiscus is still putting out a few blooms.|
|The butterfly ginger blooms just outside the window of the room where I do my daily pedaling on my recumbent bike, so I'm able to watch the hummingbirds jostle over the blooms as entertainment while I do my boring exercise.|
|The tall pink (and invasive) ruellia called 'Chi-Chi' is in full bloom.|
|And so is its compact and non-invasive cousin, 'Katie.'|
|The buttonbush is still sporting its weird little blossoms.|
|White cat's whiskers.|
|Turk's Cap - the old dependable.|
|The bronze Esperanza has bloomed steadfastly all summer long.|
|And so has the 'Pride of Barbados.'|
|Anisacanthus wrightii is in full bloom at this time of year and attracting Sulphur butterflies.|
|'Darcy Bussell' rose.|
|And more lantana with Gulf Fritillary.|
|Pink brugmansia has been a good bloomer this year.|
|And the Duranta erecta (Golden Dewdrops) just keeps on going.|
|It's easy to see why a common name for Hamelia is firebush.|
|My everblooming blue plumbago.|
Thank you for visiting my garden this month. I look forward to visiting yours!
Happy Bloom Day.
