California fuchsia (Epilobium ‘Route 66’)
It is that time again, Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, by Carol of May Dreams Gardens blog. Last month I said the garden was quiet, little in bloom. This month there is even less. Let’s face it, after six months with no rain, following nearly two weeks of single digit humidity and triple digit temperatures, the garden is quiet. So I played around with my camera to make up for the limited subject matter. Enjoy!
One small flower on a western columbine (Aquilegia formosa) that is in a 1 gallon pot waiting to be planted in the woodland garden in November.
Purple three-awn (Aristeda purpurea) blooming its heart out. Hot-or-not, it looks great with nearly no water!
The buckwheats (Eriogonum fasciculatum) are amazing as well. I am definitely getting more of these for their reliable summer flowers and all-year good looks.
