Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day | August 2009

My home gardens are in need of some attention.  I’ve been busy with design work so it’s a case of the shoemaker’s children–my clients’ gardens look great!  Here’s what is blooming outside my house this morning despite my neglect..

    Thanks Helen.

  2. That Coreopsis is really cool, great petal shape! I love Sally Holmes, had a beauty in my last house that I hated to leave (but she wanted to stay!) Happy Bloom Day!

    Lovely blog…. how’s life on the road?

    We have a mutual admiration society I think. The Taj Mahal? India’s on my list. I’m off the road right now, will be on the road briefly next week and then on the road again in September. You reminded me that I have to finish my Portland series…

    That coreopsis looks like a gailardia to me. Pretty. I that color.

    I bought that coreopsis from a mad scientist who has a greenhouse near here. He is not the best plant labeler. This one was labeled, but for the life of me, when I wrote it down in my records, I only wrote Coreopsis lanceolata and not the variety. bout 18″ tall It’s not supposed to be hardy in Z6, but it has appeared year after year since I planted it 5 years ago…
