Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – July 2017

I’ve not done a very good job of revving up my blogging productivity this summer. I’ll chalk it up to hard labor in the garden, erratic work schedule and a busy visitor schedule. We’ll see how things go from here on out.

I tried my darnedest to stay true to what’s blooming TODAY but the morning light just didn’t want to cooperate so I cheated a bit and had to use a couple from this past week.

Short on commentary and long on pictures, hopefully the story will tell itself…there’s a lot going on at Mardi Gras Gardens right now!

  1. Wow! Lots of really beautiful flowers! Love the Dierama. I wish mine would bulk up like that. I also can’t get my Berkheya to stand up straight like yours either, it flops all over.

    • Thanks! I think the Berkheya is more “propped up” than anything as it sits on the edge of some hardscape boulders 🙂 I’ve nicknamed it Ursula as it ends up looking like a giant octopus a after awhile!
