Yesterday was Bloom Day. Thanks to Carol, at May Dreams Gardens, garden bloggers throughout the world post on what is currently in flower in their gardens. It is a great way to see real gardens by simply browsing the comments list on Carols post. So let me introduce the stars of my September garden!
Photos above from top: Japanese Anemone, Shasta Daisy, Calendula, Verbena Bonariensis and Impatiens.
The Japanese Anemone is my favourite flower at the moment. My garden is mostly foliage with many shades of green and textures so the contrast of intensity in flower colour shown above works well dotted around in small drifts.
Photos above from top: Sea Holly, Nepata, Aster and Penstemon ‘etna’ are all found in my front garden with ornamental grasses and silver leaved Euphorbia.
The main cast, shown above, would be nothing without the plants hiding in the background on the ground, climbing over trellis or lurking in the shadows. To see the supporting cast of my September garden click here .
The photos above were taken in my garden on September 15th 2007.
