A Sizzling Hot Bloom Day

It is Garden Blogger's Bloom Day Garden Blogger's Bloom Dayagain! 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 been a HOT one. How hot? We are approaching a record # of 90+ degree days in a row - today we are at Day 20.


I realized that many of you might be visiting this blog just once a month for Bloom Day and not have seen our weekly Plant Profile videos/articles. Most all of these are flowering plants and much of the footage is shot in my own home garden, especially in this time of COVID and limited access to local public gardens. Our latest one is on Monarda, which is blooming away in my unforgiving and unwatered hellstrip pollinator garden. These are locally focused for the Mid-Atantic USA and are also seasonal -- profiling plants of interest in the garden at that time. You can view them here:
