June 2007 Bloom Day

It is definitely that time of to work in the yard, great hopes for a successful garden, the earwigs are slowing down, lots of little projects to fine tune. As well as no time to blog...and really not even time to read blogs. I have a lot of catching up to do. But the down side of summer had arrived, as well, this week. Our first run of over 100 degree days without our more common night time cooling off. Wow...I really AM a weather wimp. Spoiled, spoiled, spoiled. Having lived part of my life in Ohio I am not unaware of the possibilities weather can offer. But we really are blessed with what we have and I have to say I am in awe of what some gardeners endure without giving up. Future 100 degree days will allow me time to post about my new little sideyard drought tolerant garden and a few other recent projects but for is a quick list of what's blooming in Davis today...
Daylilies...Big Gold (I wonder if I will ever remember to dig it out and pass it along to someone who WANTS a big gold daylily) and three others that don't fit the descriptions of what they should be. I think I have bad daylily karma.
Shasta daisies
purple potato vine
Rozanne geranium
alstroemeria Regina
Pink Parasol abutilon
lilium regale
several penstemons
several salvias (May Night, Blue Hill, Sclarea, berrelieri, muelleri)
several pelargoniums
several succulents
hollyhocks (note included bee)
golden oregano
fortnight lily
glossy abelia
bush mallow
society garlic
blue marguarites
white potato vine
nepeta Walker's Low
In bud...cypella coelestis from Annies Annuals which I am anxious to see!
And now (8:30 PM) it is down to 82 degrees with our beloved delta breeze doing its magic...tomorrow will be a good day for the garden tour at the Sacramento Cemetery!

Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers Bloom Day again. I know what you mean about the weather. Sometimes, it slows us down, but it never knocks us out. Your flowers are all pretty, you can tell you've been busy in your garden.

Nice blooms. Do you grow the flowering maple outside? I have grown it as a houseplant.

All...Thanks for visiting!
iowa gardening woman...yes I grow the abutilon outside...I wasn't even aware it could be grown indoors! It is usually quite happy outdoors here and the hummingbirds really like it.
