Garden Blogger's Bloom Day July 2013

With little time for blogging recently (semi retired, hah!) I'll have to be content with pictures rather than explanation for this Blooms day.  Lots in flower at the height of summer.  Here's a few highlights.

Ceratostigma willmottianum

Crocosmia 'Lucifer'

Hemerocallis 'Children's Festival'

Repeat flowering Hydrangea 'MMe Emile Mouillere'

A star pelargonium that overwintered outside in a window box

Waterlily 'Escarboule'
My large cordyline 'Coffee Cream' is flowering

The diminutive Freesia laxa

English rose 'Graham Thomas'

English Rose 'Summer Song'
 When the hostas flower it's easy to realise that they are members of the lily family.  This one is 'Frances Williams'
Hosta 'Frances Williams'

Phygelius 'Yellow Trumpet'

As always, my thanks to May Dreams Gardens for hosting the Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day meme.  Head over there to see what's flowering in many more gardens round the world.


  1. Lots of beautiful summer blooms at your place. Lovely Roses. Happy Bloom Day.

  2. Summer this year has been gorgeous so far. Gorgeous selection of blooms you have there!

  3. You really do have some pretty flowers in bloom. Your 'Graham Thomas' rose is especially beautiful. It's one of my favorites. My 'Graham' is only sending out an occasional bloom now but any are apreciated!

  4. Thanks everyone. Shortage of time is really slowing down my blogging and replies so my apologies.
