Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
Bright red geraniums on the porch...
A few colorful coleus plants...
... and red roses that smell absolutely divine. There are six red rose bushes that line the perimeter of the backyard. These are my first rose bushes. I'll have to read up on them because I don't know the slightest thing about rose care. (Do I prune them in the fall or spring?)
From the community garden in the District, I brought along several of my perennial flowers. I planted them along the deck, which is where they'll hold out for the winter until I decide on permanent places for them.
One of my Black-eyed Susans waves goodbye, until next summer.
Gardeners share their flowers on the 15th of each month for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. Read the comments at May Dreams Gardens to see who else is participating today.
