Boring. That, I am afraid, is the theme of this Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day in my zone 8B garden here outside of Houston. Same boring heat. Same boring drought. And pretty much the same boring blossoms I've been showing you all summer.
chocolate plant, Pseuderanthemum alatum. As you can see, it has sent up two small bloom spikes, although the blooms are not quite there yet. It may be cheating just a little bit to include it here, but, my blog, my rules!
In just over a week, autumn will actually be here. That long-awaited and longed-for season, the favorite of so many gardeners, including myself. We can only hope that September 23 does in fact bring an end to this interminable summer not just on the calendar and that we finally get some relief from our heat and drought. And I hope that in October I will have something to show you that is not at all boring!
Don't forget to visit our wonderful hostess Carol at May Dreams Gardens and see the list of other very non-boring gardens that are participating in this Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.
Thank you for visiting my garden. Happy Bloom Day!
