July Bloom Day

15 Jul 2016
Rain 18°C / 64°F

So what to choose for Bloom Day as there is nothing new blooming?

The fabulous Clematis Emilia Plater because this is what I see from my back door, and because I can’t believe there are still flowers on this clematis after all the wind we have had and especially after last night when the blooms were tugged straight out from the vines.

Clematis Jackmanii superba because it bloomed superbly this year and because it has held onto its flowers despite wind and storm. These are probably the last flowers; there are still flowers on C. Huldine but they are battered and going over.

The big bold Hemrocallis New Tangerine Twist, which is a bit more pink than tangerine but is the latest of the Hemerocallis to start blooming

LA Lily Brindisi newly blooming in House

The sweetly scented Clove Pinks, one of which sits in a pot at nose level on the Porch balustrade and gives me pleasure when I pass it. I don’t seem to have entered this dianthus whose twin is located in House to the south of the Leucanthenum Snowdrift.
