I had fun taking photos in the rain today, knowing I'd be busy tomorrow, and not able to do it. Most of the flowers I've already posted pics of are still blooming, except for some of the asters. This one bloomed a day or two after the others, and is still blooming nicely next to the Fireworks Goldenrod.
I've never gotten a second bloom from Foxgloves until this year. This is on the east side of our house.
The Agastache Blue Fortune and Ageratum have bloomed all summer, and are still!
This is my new flower bed that was started the first week of June. In this pic are Vanilla Marigolds, Pentas, Diamond Frost Euphorbia, Malva Zebrina, Black and Blue Salvia, and the Queen Anne's Lace that is about to bloom.
I think this Yarrow is Paprika, and the Foxglove may be a Strawberry.
This pink Cosmos has just been blooming a few days. Some of the other colors are Heliotrope, Blanket Flower, white Cosmos, Datura, and the Black and Blue Salvia. On the arbor, are a Clematis on the left, and a pretty much finished Morning Glory sharing space with a Snail Vine, which is still blooming.
This Vancouver Dahlia has been blooming most of the summer, a few blooms at a time, except for one flush of a bunch. I've never grown big ones before, but liked the ones my DH's grandma grew. This one defied staking, flopping all over, and got some disease on it, but it's blooming on!
This Datura, a relative of Moonflowers, was purchased as a small plant from some local growers who grew them at someone else's request, but didn't pull the flowers off the small plants to encourage them to grow bigger. I noticed they didn't sell many. I need to decide if I'm going to let this reseed, as I found out it is more poisonous than Moonflowers. I guess the Foxgloves may be, too. I don't plan on GS being out alone, so I'll have to decide about that. Do any of you with some of these plants have young children around?
I think these are annual phlox and there are a few pansies in the middle.
My cleome in the new bed has bloomed all summer, but is pretty much finished. This one still in the veggie garden with less light is just blooming, and is pinker than the one I moved to the front.

A volunteer Salvia of some kind?
These plants, geranium, dahlia, and a Gerbera Daisy, were given to me by different teachers last May for para appreciation day at the school I work at.
I have several pansies that have been in bloom since early spring, but some have had some wear and tear.
I forgot the name of this begonia, but if it doesn't live in the house over the winter, I'll know where to get more. It has bloomed all summer, too!
I don't remember whether I planted this marigold from seeds or what, but it is taller than the others I got from someone on Freecycle, but the flower is about the same size. This plant is just starting to bloom, and is up to the top of the tomato cage, almost 3 feet!
My hollyhocks are all cut down, but this one is reblooming.
This area of the back yard was planted the first part of July. The asters and coneflowers are doing well.
We may let the coleus bloom to see what it looks like, now that the nights are getting colder. This one is holding some rain water, can you see it?
These impatiens were cut back a little a week or so ago because they have overgrown the hosta I had in there, but it looks like they have taken some of the territory back. We had a dog kennel up until the first part of July, so now that it's gone, I plan to add more hostas and maybe some other shade plants. If I plant more impatiens, it won't be as many.
I don't remember what kind of lavender this is, but it has a different bloom than my others. I grow several kinds, some in pots, some in the ground. Some are finished, and some are on a second flush of blooms. I got some picked and dried from the first blooms.
I don't think I remember what all I have blooming, but it won't be blooming much longer. It's supposed to get down to 34 in a couple nights, and 32 can't be too far away. My pineapple sage is just now blooming, salvias, begonias, Jupiter's Beard, perennial geraniums, straw flowers, statice, snapdragons, lantanas, moonflower vine, black eyed Susans, and some dianthus.
Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day! I have had several interruptions this evening, and am glad to be finishing this up! Oops, and now the blogger is unavailable! I'll save it and post later.
