Garden Blogger's Bloom Day, June 2010

I've decided, for the first time, to formally participate in Garden Blogger's Bloom Day. I may have posted flower pictures on the 15th of the month before, but never on purpose. So here is what is blooming today here among the leaves.

First indoors:

Sinningia speciosa variety (Florist's Gloxinia)

Hoya carnosa 'Krimson Queen'

And Outdoors:

Leucanthemum x superbum (Shasta Daisy)

Rudbeckia hirta cultivar

NoId Lilium (Asiatic lily)

I'm pretty sure that this is Hemerocallis 'Happy Returns'

Sedum kamtschaticum

Clematis 'Jackmanii'

Sedum reflexum 'Blue Spruce.' I included this photo just because I love how the colors came out so oddly. Something about the contrast between the bluish foliage and the yellow flowers confused my camera, I guess. The plant isn't as otherworldly looking in person.

All photos open larger when clicked.

Rudbeckias are my FAVES! But that sedum 'blue spruce' is pretty interesting, too. I've never seen that before.

Cool garden!

The hoya bloom is unusual but pretty. Great shots of the the rudbeckias and shasta daisy.

Rudbeckia hirtas are one of my favorite flowers. The ones that I really like are only annuals, but they have been reseeding themselves enough every year that I have at least a few plants blooming every year.

That Blue Spruce does look otherwordly! I have some of it too, and love it in my rock garden.
