Bloom Day - July 15,2013

Happy Bloom day! I've been absent from bloom day for a bit as we were in the middle of a move to our new home (see previous post on that). I don't have many flowers right now since I'm working from a blank slate, but I do have some pretty things blooming in pots. Here's what I've got:

Begonia. I overwintered these tubers with resounding success:


Fuchsia, black and blue salvia, hot lips salvia, hawkshead fuchsia, and red geranium in pots:

Lavender fuchsia:


Hot pink fuchsia:


Purple and white stripey petunias:


Red geranium and pink guara:


Firecracker fern:


Blue hydrangea patiently waiting to be planted in the woodland garden:


Atom gladiola:


Shasta daisy. These are one of the few flowers in the ground right now:


It's been a long time since I haven't had much of anything in the ground to show off and feels a bit weird, but that will be fixed as time goes on. I've got a big project ahead of me and soon I'll have many wonderful and fun things to share. For now its all about planning, dreaming, and building. Happy Bloom day everyone!

Ah, fuchsias! My mother loved them. We can't grow them here, too hot and humid. Yours are oh so pretty!

You have some pretty flowers for Bloom Day. I love the fuchsias and petunias. Unfortunately I have given up on petunias because of the petunia budworms and the fuchsias in the coastal garden are being destroyed by the fuchsia mites! But thankfully there are other hardy flowers that want to grow. I enjoyed seeing your photos.

I hope the move is going smoothly...and I bet you are itching to get out there and plant!
