Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - August 2022
I admit that I completely forgot about Carol Michel's meme Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day this month. It was only after I started seeing other bloggers' posts that I remembered, so I grabbed my camera and ran outside to record what is blooming in my garden this month. It didn't take long because there is not much there. Only the toughest of the tough plants can still manage to produce a few blooms when the temperatures hover around 100 degrees Fahrenheit every day and the few puffy clouds have forgotten how to drop their moisture. Here then are the hardy few that still brighten my garden and provide sustenance for the butterflies. (If some of them look wilted, it's because they are. The pictures were taken when it was 96 degrees and felt like 103.)
Purslane, of course, in pink...
Thank you for visiting my hot and dry zone 9 garden in Southeast Texas this month. I look forward to visiting your garden in what I hope is a somewhat cooler clime!
