A Day Late But Not A Flower Short for Bloom Day

Unfortunately I'm a day late on Bloom Day but I'm definitely not a bloom short! Yesterday I posted the Fall Color Project Post for the week. Be sure to take plenty of photos for your Fall Color Project 2010 Post!

On with the blooms!

Yellow Pansies - still need planted...

Pink annual Salvia coccinnea

Purple Coneflowers - a little washed out.

Mystic Spires Salvia - I like to plant this one every year.

Purple Wave Petunias - a nice discount rack find!

Red Achillea - most likely 'Paprika'

Red Flowered Gaillardia with a little yellow on the petals

Red Mums with a side order of 'Oranges and Lemons' Gaillardia

Pineapple sage - bloomin' strong

Red mums and red salvia - do you think I like salvia?

Red Zinnia grown from seed - it's definitely time to begin collecting seeds!

Salvia farinacea next to the blue garden shed! Yep I like salvia!

'Walker's Low' Catmint - a reliable nearly no care, deer resistant, and rabbit resistant favorite of mine! And it propagates easily too!

Sheffield Pink Mums! A new addition to the garden from a spring plant swap. I will be propagating many more of these in the spring!
Thanks for stopping by for Bloom Day!

Go visit Carol to see what's blooming in other backyards!
