May Dream Gardens invites everyone, on the fifteenth of the month, to share the blooms found in their gardens. With our ongoing heat & drought, flowers are pretty rare in my garden.
Water plants account for almost all my blooms. The Water Poppy (Hydrocleys nymphoides) has taken over the pond and puts out plenty of its yellow blooms.
Rising high above the pond surface, the Aztec Arrowhead (Sagittaria montevidensis) has a nice cluster of brilliant white blooms that shine in the filtered sunshine.
Only a single bloom remains on the Ground Orchid (Spathoglottis plicata). Its small cluster of purple flowers has been fading, but at least this one is still hanging in there.
The berries of the American Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) are just starting to change from green to their deep purple color.
Be sure to visit May Dream Gardens to see what flowers are shining in other's gardens.
