What’s blooming today?

I think I’m going to make this a regular article on Fridays so that I can keep track of what is happening in my garden.

So, for today, pretty much everything that was blooming last week is still going even if some things have slowed down.  The roses had their big flush and now we have just a few blooms on most of them.  The big exceptions are the climbing Fairy rose and the Red Cascade.  Mrs B.R. Cant, the Daybreaker, and the red rose that I took from Mom’s yard in Oklahoma which all still have quite a few blooms.

The strawberries have slowed down on the bloom, but the plants are growing to be huge with all the rain.  The Louisiana Iris seem to be close to finished also.  The snapdragons seem to be loving things, though.

The new things blooming are the daylilies (the smaller yellow ones), St. John’s Wort, the ‘Australian Skies’ anise sage, hollyhocks, ‘Sweet Kate’ spiderwort, the newly planted white impatiens and white pentas, and what I think is a Kamchatka stonecrop (or some other yellow flowering sedum).

So, what is blooming in your garden?
