A Golden 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 in the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, summer has been unusually wet - but I'm not complaining! Even though July was insanely hot, I have not had to drag the hoses out nor top off my water garden yet. This last week brought in mercifully cooler temps and so I'm finally able to get out and beat back some of the rampant weeds.

In bloom now in my garden are many flowers with golden hues including Black-eyed Susans, the aptly named Goldenrod, yellow Echinacea, and Cup Plant. My favorite though is Bronze Fennel (pictured above). It is like a halo of golden flowers that is the perfect backdrop to many other garden plants and the pollinators love it too!

In the garden also blooming today, I have blooming: Hydrangeas, reblooming Lilacs and Azaleas, Waterlilies, Lotus, Pickerel Weed, Trumpet Creeper vine, Zinnias, Celosia, and much more!

Be sure to follow @WDCgardener on Instagram for lots of pics of what is blooming in our garden and area gardens that we visit.

So what is blooming today in YOUR garden?


  1. Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  2. The Bronze Fennel does look pretty as a see-through plant or a backdrop plant.

    1. Agreed! Also great to use in cut-flower arrangements as a filler.

  3. That Bronze Fennel sure is a beauty! We are getting our first rain in weeks here on Long Island and the flowers need it!

    1. Hope you got more rains - summer drought is so tough to endure!
