    Happy Bloom Day! I see you’ve discovered the slideshow feature of wordpress, too:) What’s the purple flower see right before the phlox? And is that Helenium Mardi Gras?

      Yes, not only discovered but love using it! I have added labels to the photos, but the purple flower is Monarda ‘Dark Ponticum’. And yes, that is Mardi Gras, a favorite around here!

    Love the picture of the grass fronds. What sort is it?

      The grass is Pennisetum ‘Rubrum’ Sarah. It is not hardy here, so treated like an annual. Thanks for the comments!

    Lovely images of pretty blooms. I posted a comment today about the slideshow, and now I realize that the slideshow is from wordpress. But which one? There are so many to choose from or is a widget? I like the presentation, but can it be slowed down without user input? BTW. Happy Bloom Day.

      The slideshow app appears at the bottom of each gallery you upload in your post. Each viewer has the ability to pause, advance or go back by clicking on buttons in the slideshow. Thanks for the kind words!

    Very nice slideshow! My chelone hasn’t started yet – maybe because it’s in pretty deep shade…

      Chelone is just getting going here. Love to watch the pollenators crawling in and out of the blossoms!

    Enjoyed your slide show, Scott. Great photos. After catching a glimpse of your white scabiosa I may have to add one to my gardens – all mine are blue.

      Hi Joene! Scabiosa ochroleuca captivated me the first time I saw it, and is one of my favorites. It blooms a long time too!

    You do have a lot going on. Simply lovely. I especially love the Helenium. I saw it for the first time this year and really love the color.

      I’m not usually an orange person, but the Helenium is very nice, and blooms for a while! Thanks for the comments Kat!

    Love the slide show feature, very easy to watch and navigate. I haven’t seen white chelone before. I have the pink that are just starting to open and am already trying to figure out if I have space to mix in some white, they do expand rapidly!

    The white Chelone is a little taller (4′) Linda, so possibly deeper in the border. Sounds like you’ll find space. 😉 Thanks for the comments!
