Bloom Day June 2017: Panoramic To Tiny
Hopefully you can see the panoramas on whatever your format might be--phone or computer. Clicking on the photo makes them expand. Roses, Dahlia, 'Rozanne', Salvias, Hemerocallis, Fuchsias, Hydrangeas.
Just a few more flowers...the second of the three Clematis purchased from Joy Creek has bloomed: 'Blekitny Aniol', which is Polish for 'Blue Angel':
Clematis 'Venosa Violacea' was first to bloom. I was not expecting such large plants so the support was intended to be temporary. I had to add another piece of fencing because the plant kept growing.
A more attractive support next year, promise!
Now, tiny flowers, dainty and delicate.
A crescent moon of Leucanthemum with the dark foliage of a dark foliaged Dahlia and the inevitable Geranium 'Rozanne':
Crassula pubescens ssp radicans, a tiny wine-stemmed forest topped with minute buttery blooms:
Echeveria secunda, I think:
Echeveria 'Pollux' I fear will bloom itself to death. It bloomed all last spring, all last summer, all last fall, all winter, all this spring, and it is sending up new flowers stalks again. Honey, don't you need a rest?
E. strictiflora, reportedly a persnickety species. We'll see what it thinks of Southern California.
Echeveria subridgida. It just recovered from last year's flower show, and here it goes again. It is larger than some of my Agaves!
Last, a salute to Late To The Garden Party which has shown, over time, so many beautiful Eustoma (Lisianthus) flowers. It motivated me to buy a couple six-packs for myself this spring. The first Eustoma (Lisianthus) flower from this garden, paired of course with the inevitable Geranium 'Rozanne'. White and lavender-blue, to cool us off as summer looms.
"Eustoma" means "beautiful mouth".
Happy Bloom Day!
