It is Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day again! On the 15th of each month, we gardeners with blogs share a few bloom photos from our gardens.
Here in the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, the past month has been generally hot, but we had some moderate days and a taste of fall, so the garden is starting to feel like it is rounding the corner soon from lush, jungle exuberance to shaggy autumn decline.
For this month’s Bloom Day. I thought I’d share a picture of the Autumn Daffodils in my garden. It is also known as fall daffodil, winter daffodil, or yellow autumn crocus. The Latin name is Sternbergia lutea. Despite the bright-yellow color, it really does look more like a tall crocus, than a daffodil to me.
In the rest of the garden today, I have blooming: Gomphrena, Cosmos, Sunflowers, Goldenrod, Celosia, Tall Phlox, Japanese Anemone, Butterfly Bush, Tall Verbena, Petunias, Rose of Sharon, Butterfly Bush, Zinnias, Cosmos, Fuchsia, Bacopa, Impatiens, etc.
So what is blooming today in YOUR garden?
