Dog Days of Summer Bloom Day

We are in the dog days of summer–from early July through the end of September. These dates can vary, depending on location, but the phrase does mean a hot, sultry time, such as we’ve been having on the Gulf Coast. I’ve refused to go out of the house in the afternoon.

You can join in with other Bloom Day Bloggers by visiting our generous host Carol at May Dreams Gardens. Thank you, Carol!

Common, I forget the name at the moment, but the blooms make me foolishly happy.


Heard bees in the liriope. Good sign!


crepe myrtle, still, dropping blossoms everywhere.


One of the gifts of my life.
