Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for June 2022.
Here in my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in central Indiana, we’ve been enjoying a mostly mild spring which has caused the garden, and weeds, to explode with growth.
In the middle of Plopper’s Field, a little delphinium popped up next to some tall phlox.
I don’t remember planting the delphinium but when I went looking for a tag for another flower, I find the tag for it. It’s Delphinium grandiflorum Delfix® Blue. Had I bothered to read the tag, I would have realized it only grows to about one foot tall. I should have planted it someplace other than the middle of the flower bed. I noticed it only because it has bright blue flowers.
Elsewhere, new flowers are popping open nearly every day, old flowers are fading, and summer has taken hold of the garden with temperatures in the 90s this week.
Here are some photos I took early in the morning on the 14th, with captions.
