Another week of mild daytime temps (70's), cool evenings, and a few showers. Garden flowers have persisted much longer this year. I don't believe I've ever had Foxgloves for five weeks and the side shoots are in bloom now. The first Dahlia bud opened this week blooming at least a month earlier than normal. There was more blooming in the garden this evening than I expected when I took a garden walk with the camera.
Last of the big Foxglove spikes.
I've had mixed results with Heuchera's over the years. They form a nice clump and flower good when I keep them moist. The first pic is in a pot on a patio table and gets watered daily. The next is 'Georgia Peach'.
Another shrub in heavier than normal bloom this year is Florida Leucothoe. This is a good shrub for dry shade and has a nice weeping habit.
In the curb garden Gallardia is in full bloom. When I keep it deadheaded it blooms profusely for the entire summer.
These were the church flower cuttings this past week and an arrangement.
