So, how about some of my smaller flowers for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day? These are my cute little Bat-Faced Cupheas. Some people think they look like mice rather than bats. A dear friend of mine in California used to grow these, so they remind me of her. The hummingbirds are supposed to like them, but I am still waiting to see on that.
I like the way the Sedum sarmentosum looks on my stone wall. I do think, though, that after it finishes blooming, a little "taming" will need to take place.
A couple of my Heucheras are sending up flowers. I couldn't get a good picture of the stalks of white blooms, but here is a coral one. Do you think I should water the Hydrangea?
Blue Star Creeper (Pratia pedunculata) is adorable. It always gets lost in the ground, so I transplanted it into a pot. It does seem happier without so much competition.
I bought my Bletilla striata 'Albostriata' (Striped Hardy Ground Orchid) last fall, so this is the first time I have seen it bloom. Isn't it gorgeous? I am very pleased with it. Thank you, Carol, for another Garden Bloggers's Bloom Day!
Have a beautiful day!
SOMETIMES YOU JUST GET LUCKY
