Hi Leslie,
I'm intrigued by your four o'clocks. They're quite different from the plant I call a four o'clock (Mirabilis Jalapa, which also blooms at this time - I posted a photo for GBD on my blog too. Wonder if they're different varieties?

Good idea to always have a few plants in mind that you "need" in case you go to a nursery.

Lots going on in your Davis garden, as always. Thanks for posting for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day again!

Sue...I didn't have a photo of them on my GBBD post but have put one on a new post...I'm not sure what photo was confusing!
Carol...I wouldn't miss GBBD...I love a garden party!

Nice assortment, Leslie, and you sure have a lot in bloom at once!

We have some plants in common but you're more successful - my Solanum is a total non-bloomer. Maybe it's in too much shade or something?

That wisteria is still blooming!? Seeing what plants do in different climates is one of the things I love about GBBD.

Hi there, Leslie

I have been late to post for GBBD but I am now enjoying looking through the gardens from the last up! You have quite a list of plants and one or two that I have in my Scottish garden. Nepeta Walker's Low I love and it’s great for the butterflies and bees! I pruned mine hard back a few weeks ago and now I am being rewarded with a second flush of flowers :-)

I see you have penstemon too – I have ‘Etna’ in my garden and have taken many cuttings. Wisteria Flowers here in May/June and I have a white scented one – does yours normally flower at this time of year?

Annie...I have two solanums about 15 feet apart...and the one that gets about half as much sun rarely blooms and is on the soon to be gone list! I think it does need about 8 hours of sun here.
Shirl...the wisteria begins blooming about April depending on the weather and I pick the seed pods off to keep it blooming lightly all summer. It's never like the initial bloom but I actually like it better with the green leaves as backdrop!

You've got quite a long list of blooms still. How nice that your wistaria is still putting out some blooms.

I read on other blogs about 4 o''clocks but I did not know which plant that was. So thanks for the pic of yours,because now I know! ;-)

BTW my blooms are up too.
