I thought I would do another Floral Photos Post. For one reason, my Brown-eyed Susans started to bloom a few days ago, and I have been meaning to share a picture of them. I noticed a few other blooms this morning, when I was trying to bring a little lawn order into my life (not very successfully, but let us not worry about that now). I went outside with my Tablet this evening to see what I could get.
I was pleased to see more blooms. I only saw one little tiny one a few days ago. The Brown-eyed Susans kind of magically appeared a couple of years ago. This year, they are growing great guns. When the other ones start to bloom, I will take more pictures.
I planted the Black-eyed Susans on purpose, having purchased the plant some nine years ago at a sale to benefit, I believe, Herkimer County Humane Society. They have expanded as well, but their area is becoming overgrown with other things. I must clean it out but fear it is too late in the year to do much good.
The Queen Anne’s Lace magically appeared this year. When I was younger, I used to pick it and put it in food coloring to dye it.
The purple flowers previously appeared (with no effort on my part) elsewhere in the yard. These blooms were amongst the chives that share the bed with the Black-eyed Susans.
I had a hard time getting a good picture of the Rose of Sharon because of where the sun was; I could not see what I was photographing. This shows the flowers, but does not do the whole bush justice. I will have to try again one morning.
I am happy to see more blossoms appearing as the summer wears on. One year I may actually plan my garden to be sure of it happening. At least, I can hope! Happy Monday, everyone!
