Sunflowers Still for Bloom Day


It is Garden Blogger's Bloom Day again! On the 15th of each month, we gardeners with blogs share a few bloom photos from our gardens. Here is the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, the past month has continued to be very dry. We have had cold spells, but no real frost/freeze for me yet. It has been so freaking dry that I had to turn back ON my outside water and top off my pond with several hundred gallons of water as it was starting to endanger the pump system.

In my sidewalk median aka the hellstrip, sunflowers are still going strong. I cut one or two every few days to put next to my kitchen sink to enjoy. Each time, I think "this may be the last one" - so far though they just keep on blooming away. 

 What is blooming in YOUR garden today?

Here in upstate New York, just the very hardy bloomers are still blooming. But, surprisingly, still a lot of roses, and not just knockouts. Such a surprising year. But, by Sunday, we may be getting snow, alas.

My double-blooming yellow irises finally started blooming again last week. They are now sending up more and more stalks. Last year they bloomed from beginning of Oct. through Dec. I gave the last ones to my mom for Xmas!
Thanks for sharing you lovely blooms, Eileen and Alana!
