September Bloom Day

It’s hard to believe Bloom Day is already here. At first I didn’t think we had much in bloom. I was wrong. Be sure to check out May Dreams Garden’s Bloom Day site to see what’s blooming around the world.

Grevillea lanigera ‘Coastal Gem’

I love the freaky flowers covering this guy. A couple of my other Grevilleas aren’t looking so hot. The tips are turning black along with the foliage. Has anyone had this happen?

Echeveria setosa

This sweet fuzzy succulent has been blooming for a couple weeks. It’s part of the crazy box of succulents.

Sempervivum sp.

Lovely deep pink blooms. For a little bit I was anti-semps in our garden. One must have gotten rotty or something back in day. They’re all looking happy, and having babies like crazy these days.

Eccremocarpus scaber ‘Tresco Gold’

Guess what? The Eccremocarpus is STILL flowering like mad. The hummingbirds freak out on it all day long. I never knew I co have so much love for a vine.  We planted it back in February or March, and it’s been covered in flowers ever since. It’s buddy ‘Cherry Red’ is doing well too.

This guy is a survivor. I thought I had  ripped it’s sad looking self out a couple months ago. It was part of my bad annual container moment a couple months ago.

Sedum sp.

That’s a cute little dudleya up front. While trying to figure out which sedum this was I found the motherload of sedum images at Still can’t remember the name of this one though.


Our self watering container of veggies is freaking out. Thanks again to Fern at Life on the Balcony for hooking us up with our cool container on wheels.

Echeveria sp.

You can barely see the ruffled beauty below these flowers. Quite a few of our echeveria blooms were attacked by evil black aphids this year. By the time I realized what was going on it was too late to do anything.

Frou Frou Fuchsia

This is our fuchsia that always looked like it was on the verge of death when it was in a container. It’s loving the new real estate in the ground.

Happy Bloom Day!
