Bloom Day, August 15, 2010

Well, we’re not in July anymore.  The day lilies are all but done.  The hydrangeas are darkening.  And the anemones are beginning to bloom.  A friend did some phantom gardening in the secret garden a couple years ago.  He plunked two little bits of anemone, one pink, the other white.  This is the first year they have bloomed.  The pink ones are in a sunnier part of the garden, so they have come on first.

Below are the today’s bloomers.
