bloomday - or lack thereof
So its bloomday and there are very very few blooms in the yard! If it were decaying blooms day, then this would be easy. But alas, there are a few things that are still kicking.
Geraniums have not been fazed by the cool weather. I appreciate that about them. Though entirely ordinary, they seam to handle heat and cold better than many other annual flowers.
I forget the name of this plant, but it seems to think its spring?
"Old Faithful" that is what I choose to call my fatsia japonica. When everything else in the yard seems to wind down in the fall, fatsia just begins its show. I can't say enough about this plant.
I love how glossy this foliage is too! It's my version of a tropical philodendron!
salvia elegans... apparently the flowers are edible... maybe a salad garnish!
This little rose has been flowering non stop since may and is super fragrant!
I know, this is not exactly blooms... but its sure a picture of whats going on in the yard. I just can't believe how fast those darn leaves are piling up on the patio!!!
