Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day – June 2012

My first Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day post a few days late. :P

What is happening back here flower wise these days?

Zucchini Flower!

Poppies, poppies and more poppies.

Yarrow and CA fushias and salvia clevelandii.


Cerinthe major

cat + Mimulus

I bought a few small plants yesterday so maybe I’ll have an actual in bloom flower bed later this year. :)

  1. Nice blog! We have friends in the Bay Area and it seemed to me to be a challenging place to garden. But I really like what you are doing with your yard.

  2. The bay area can be challenging depending on where you are I think. Coastal areas or in SF proper are probably harder than where I am. I don't get much fog and my yard is like, all full sun practically. I'm trying to take advantage of it all!

  3. I ADORE salvia clevelandii….and the fragrance…amazing!

  4. Me too! I think the picture I posted is an Allen Chickering variety. My other clevlandii is a much deeper purple. I just planted 5 (!) spathaceas too. I can't wait for those to bloom!

  5. I am so pleased you put a Zucchini flower in – veggie and fruit blossom often get forgotten and some of them are amazing! I hope you get an "in bloom flower bed" very soon. Cute cat by the way!

  6. not only are zucchini flowers huge and pretty they are DELISH! :)

  7. thanks for the comments!

  8. Poppies remind me of OZ So, you won’t take waninrg, eh? All the worse for you. I’ll take care of you now instead of later. When I gain those ruby slippers, my power will be the greatest in Oz. Now my beauties. Something with poi-son in it I think. With poison in it. But attractive to the eye and soothing to the smell. Ha-ha-ha-ha. Poppies. Poppies. Poppies will put them to sleep. Sle-ee-p. Now they’ll sle-ee-p. -Wicked Witch of the West

  9. Love the California poppy in today's posting. I have a number of them self-seeding each year here on the shores of Lake Michigan. I love California and envy all of you out there
