Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for July 2022.
Here in my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in central Indiana, I feel like I’m in-between high summer blooms and early fall blooms. I suspect the dry weather has delayed some flowers and caused other plants to bloom and be done with it.
Dry weather? Well, not last night, when a thunderstorm whipped through in the early evening and left .60 inches of much-needed rain on the garden. Though I don’t like to complain because—rain—I think the plants would have liked that rain delivered much more slowly. Anyway, let’s see what else is blooming other than the daylily Hemerocallis ‘Hyperion’ a variety which harkens back to the 1920s and Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’, both pictured above in a planting by the utility box near the sidewalk. (Yes, Dee, my award-winning podcast co-host, I deadheaded the daylily before I took the picture!)
I found a few other blooms as I walked around the garden early on the morning of the 14th.
And that’s Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day here at May Dreams Gardens for July 2022.
