Garden Blogger's Bloom Day: A Cool End to Summer

Common Boneset
Eupatorium perfoliatum

This Garden Blogger's Bloom Day finds me pulling on a sweater and scanning the garden for all those in-transition period blooms. I still have many summer annuals putting on a show (petunia, lantana, etc.) and several shrubs looking very nice (hydrangea, beautyberry, etc.). A few spring-blooming shrubs are putting on a second show for early autumn like the PJM rhododendrons and groundcovr roses, which is nice to see. Pictured here are a just couple of bloomers that are near my back door so they catch my eye whenever I come and go.

What is blooming in your garden this week?

Nice list, Vin de Terre. Sounds like you have a very fragrant and pollinator-filled garden :-)
