Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for August 2023.
Here in my USDA hardiness zone 6a garden in central Indiana, the first half of August has brought nearly four inches of rain, give or take, which has completely wiped out any lingering concerns we had in May about having another dry summer.
Whew. It has been nice. Shall we look at the flowers now that you’ve read the weather update?
In my front garden, a summer-blooming ornamental onion, Allium ‘Serendipity, is in full bloom. Mixing nicely through it is good ol’ Geranium ‘Rozanne’, which has been blooming all summer. I know some people have trouble establishing Geranium ‘Rozanne’ in their gardens, but if you can get it going, it takes off and goes and goes.
Shall we quickly walk through the rest of the garden? There are quite a few blooms in August!
And that is August here in my garden.
What’s blooming in your garden? Join in for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day and show us. It’s easy to participate. Just post on your blog or on social media about the blooms in your garden on or around the 15th of the month, then leave a link below in the Mr. Linky widget below so we can find you and a comment to tell us what we have to look forward to.
