Some of the Hummingbirds favorite flowers are in full bloom now,
Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea)
and Red Birds in a Tree (Scrophularia macrantha)
They really do look like Red Birds!
Many types of Daylilies are blooming now,
none of which I know the names of.
This red daylily is part of a large group of unnamed types,
any suggestions for a name?
Beautiful blooms that were not munched by the deer
I have hundreds of these Bread Seed Poppies in various parts of the yard.
This Mallow just kind of showed up here last year.
The Blue Mist Spirea is just getting its flowers, soon it will be covered.
These are just some of the blooms in the high altitude gardens for August. I don't normally participate in the Garden Blogger Bloom Day posts but this month the blooms are looking nice, so I gave it a shot. By the end of the month the Agastaches and Russian Sage will be in full bloom and will give me something to photograph for September. Now that you've taken a look at these flowers, what's blooming in your gardens?
