Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

If you are like me, you forgot to plant for August.

Sure, I still have blooms in my garden, but most are fading fast, having been at their peak weeks ago.

At this time of year, I always regret not having planned better. (I will have the same regrets in September and October - and even January, when I realize I haven't planted for "winter interest."


I am taking the opportunity of this month's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - a regular photographic event on the 15th of every month -- to make a plant list.

And here are some of the blogs where I am looking...


Freda Cameron, at Defining Your Home, Garden and Travel, is writing about agastache, and she has plenty of pictures.

Susan Harris is showing off the border combinations in her yard on the Homestead Gardens Blog.

Dee Nash at Red Dirt Ramblings has an eviable patch of garden phlox and some brightly colored lantana, just for starters.

Boonnie Lassey's garden is "in the pink," but take note: She lives in Washington state.

For more, check out Carol's May Dreams Gardens. At the end of her post on what is blooming in her garden this month, she has links to nearly 100 other blogs that also participate in Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.
