Summer Blooming Flowers 6-30-2015

Happy Tuesday… two more days until short vacation time!!

I want you guys to be sure I don’t bring any work with me. I’m serious. Not even a small design. =-)

Click to see what was blooming in 2013 or blooming in 2014.

Lychnis arkwrightii ‘Orange gnome’ ~ Ragged robin or champion

I. Must. Have. This! The flowers are about an inch big (3 cm). Again, as with the last lychnis I shot, I would have to alter this image to express the brightness of these blooms.

Penstemon ‘Dark Towers’ ~ Beard-tounge

image

Heliopsis ‘Summer nights’ ~ False sunflower or oxeye

image

Spigelia marilandica ~ Indian pink

A native here. Likes dry shade.

Umm.. I can’t seem to remember this one…Β  πŸ˜‰

image

Eryngium ‘Big blue’ ~ Sea Holly

What’s not to like about this ‘punk-rock’ flower ?!?

image

Heuchera ‘Midnight Rose’ ~ Coral bells. The pink flecks in the leaves enlarge and turn creamy pink towards the end of the season.

image

Hemerocallis fulva ~ Orange Day-lily, Tawny Daylily, Tiger Daylily, Fulvous Daylily, Ditch Lily, Railroad Daylily, Roadside Daylily, Outhouse Lily

A wild strawberry patch… So bitter, even the birds have left it alone!

image

Morus alba ~ Mulberries!!! Soooo close! These are pie-hole height. I could eat these with my eyes closed and hands behind my back. Not yet, tho. I must wait until they are dark purple. Then I must do my civic duty and rid our land of the invasive species… one berry at a time!

  1. The flowers just keep a-blooming and are doing a good job of it. I ate mulberries as a youngster when we lived with my grandfather. The tree was old and very large. The mulberry is eaten by many species of birds but it can become invasive in the right conditions.
