Summertime, and the living is - hot. Here in upstate New York, it's the late afternoon of July 15 and it's time for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. After you visit my blog, please visit other flower gardens from around the world using the links on May Dream Gardens, who hosts this event every month.
It's the most wonderful time of the year, at least for plants here. Plentiful rain (too much, actually) and now, nature has turned up the heat.
So, what plants are soaking up the 90 degree heat in my Binghamton/Johnson City, New York area yard? Here are some of them.
These next two were plants picked up at a cooperative plant sale last week. They were dug from a Pennsylvania garden, and they didn't have names of most of the plants. That must have been a gardener with the same philosophies as I do. So let's call this one "yellow".
My hostas (also a variety I've had for many years) are having a great year.
And finally, in our back yard, an onion flower. We don't have official onion beds (we do grow onions in our community garden plot in Binghamton) but this one escaped our compost heap.
Do you garden? What's happening in your garden or in your area? (and if the answer is "winter", no worries. Our turn will be here before we know it, alas.)
Please consider joining the fun and link up if you flower garden or have indoor flowers - and if not, please look at the other gardens and their blooms.
