GBBD September 2008

How can it be the 15th already? But the calendar says it is and so Carol at May Dreams Gardens is hosting Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day once again! To see blooms from near and far visit May Dreams Gardens and indulge yourself!
In Davis we’re enjoying a bit of a welcome cool down…although we’re being threatened with more heat to come soon. There are lots of blooms but I’m having trouble finding anything new and exciting…most of the bloomers are plants that just keep turning out the blooms through much of the year…abelia, society garlic, bush mallow, abutilon, lavenders among them. The only new bloomer is one giant liriope.
So although I’m thinking about the pending winding down of the summer garden it was fun to stop and see what is still in bloom and enjoy the perseverance of some of my stalwarts. So come on in past the solanum and let's see what we find...
