Bloom Day ~ July 2010

I nearly missed posting yet another bloom day so I decided to be a purist and post just these 5 images of blooms taken this morning before leaving for work( for the sake of brevity if nothing else).

The ants are happily pollenating the Pineapple Lily~ this is Eucomis comosa I believe. If it's a named selection I've forgotten the name.

Reliable Hibiscus 'Red Flyer' has just started blooming this week. It's not as tall as I've seen it but I'm grateful it's bloomimg at all.

Phlox paniculata has not taken off in my garden so I was delighted to find this one stalk lagging behind and giving new flowers.

I have a couple of blooms from my Sweetbay rugosa.

and the Daylily star of the day was Cindy's seedling.

The weather has been brutally hot and way too dry for the garden to look good as a whole but the beauty of blogging is that you don't have to see all of that:) For more eye candy visit our hostess at May Dreams Garden where you'll find links to gardens around the world.
