Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for September 2023.
Here in my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in central Indiana, summer started with a dry spell and appears to be ending with a dry spell.
But admist the dry, drooping leaves, there are plenty of blooms.
First up are colchicums, which began blooming a few weeks ago, I think. At least that’s when I noticed them.
My clumps of these fall flowering bulbs are growing in size. I think in the spring when the leaves appear, I’ll do some digging and dividing.
I did notice earlier in the season that one colchicum bulb had worked its way up to the surface of the ground and someone never got around to planting it again. But colchicums don’t care. It flowered anyway.
To reward it for its effort, I immediately planted it after taking the picture of it.
There are other blooms hanging around in mid-September. Shall we take a walk and check them out?
There are other blooms, but that’s enough for this Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.
