Garden Blogger Bloom Day

Calycanthus occidentalis; the flowers smell like wine.

Alonsoa meridionalis. This picture is a few days old. I actually cut this plant back hard the other day. All the flowering stems are in a vase on my nightstand.

Poppies and flax.

The Bartlettina sordida in full bloom. I just cut this plant back tonight--real hard. No more flowers until next March/April.

Also in bloom, but not photographed: Lupinus arboreus, Epipactis gigantea, Camissonia cheiranthifolia, Mandevilla laxa, Gaultheria shallon, Cerinthe major, sweet pea, various succulents. I'll try to have those next time. Except Cerinthe major which I seem incapable of photographing well no matter what I do.

See this post from last week for a few more for this month.

And still blooming from last month but not shown this month here or at the previous link: Mimulus aurantiacus, M. pictus, abutilon, sunflower, wallflower.

What's not blooming anymore: Geranium maderense (removed from the garden), Ceanothus 'Frosty Blue', misc. narcissus.

As always, get your main fix at May Dreams.

I always find flowers in your garden that I've never seen or even recall hearing about. What zone is your garden in? Regardless, all the flowers are lovely and it must be nice to walk through and see them all.

Thanks for participating in garden bloggers' bloom day again!

I believe I'm in USDA zone 9, but like many gardeners in the western states, I use Sunset's system, which puts me in zone 17.

thanks for coming by!

Mmm, poppies and flax. I'd love to have that bright combo in my sunny garden.
