The 15th of the month in the gardening blogosphere is Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, when folks who blog about gardens and plants post what is blooming (or colorful) in their gardens (thanks to May Dreams Gardens blog). Here in North East Texas, there isn’t a lot of different things in bloom, thanks to a couple of below freezing nights. But, here and there, in protected areas, you can spot some flowers, (of course, the fall-planted pansies and snaps which haven’t had time to hit their stride).
But, the fall foliage has been outstanding, despite the horrendous summer drought and heat (check out earlier posts for some shots of fall foliage). Camellias (especially sasanquas) are beginning their show, and will continue for several months as various cultivars and the japonicas sequentially flaunt their large, blousy blooms.
