It's the 16th of January and I forgot it was Bloom Day yesterday! Luckily I had plenty of pictures already on my camera - I got a new camera recently so I've been testing it in my garden. I'm glad I didn't have to rush out out tonight to take any frantic snaps - it might be still daylight but it's blowing a cold southerly gale outside (hitting the country "like a freight train" as the online news article said) so I'm happy to stay inside.
In my summer garden there are plenty of choices for making bouquets. My vase in the middle picture has hydrangeas, dahlias and scabiosas. Clockwise from top left are: White hydrangea, lavatera Barnsley, bishops flower, cosmos, erigeron, pink hydrangea, heuchera, lacecap hydrangea, pansies in a sea of snow-in-summer, gaura, cactus dahlia, echinacea.
Whether it's midsummer or midwinter where you are, I hope you've got something pretty in your garden! Check out gardens all around the world at Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.
