So, here we are at another Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. Thank you to Carol at May Dreams Garden for hosting this monthly event. I'm starting with some Cypress Vine flowers. This particular vine is next to my front porch.
And this is another Cypress Vine flower, only it is white. (Duh.) You can see its feathery leaves as well as the cut leaves of the Cardinal Climber and the Morning Glory leaves which have little holes chewed in them.
The white Cypress Vine grows along the deck rail out the back door along with the Cardinal Climbers and Morning Glories shown below.
And here is a longer view of the railing.
Leading up to the back door is quite a jumble of plants. But a fairly pretty jumble, I would say.
'Ballerina' rose is part of the jumble.
As are tomatillos and Salvia guaranitica 'Argentina Skies'.
On the other side of the walk, Salvia guaranitica 'Black and Blue' is ever so lovely. And quite popular with the insects.
My collection of pots on the back deck is still looking good. Well, relatively.
I love to see the Rose of Sharon and the white Buddleia in Julie's white garden. Also in the picture is the last of the Sweet Autumn Clematis. It's fading now.
Speaking of white, my tiny Santa Barbara daisies (Erigeron karvinskianus) are hanging in there. They were transplanted a few months ago and so haven't quite yet made themselves at home, but they are producing some flowers.
I have some roses blooming, including Marie Daly, Jacques Cartier, Double Delight, and Betty Prior, as well as the unknown orange rose below.
And Molineux. Beautiful, beautiful Molineux. The photo really doesn't do it justice.
The front porch Impatiens are blooming again. It won't be too long before it will be time to put Johnnies on the front porch. You can also see Salvia Coccinea and a Cypress Vine.
My Buddleias are still blooming. And providing sustenance for the flutter-byes.
I love the way the different colors of Salvia coccinea have reseed themselves here. Not quite what I would have planned, but they are very pretty with the Variegated Lirope and its purple blooms.
These two Salvias make such a lovely vignette together. Yes, the pink one is Salvia coccinea. (If you don't know, "coccinea" means "scarlet".) And the blue is Salvia farinacea. Thanks for coming to visit my garden!
Have a beautiful day!
SOMETIMES YOU JUST GET LUCKY
