My Garden by Bloom Time…

This gardening season I took my camera outside often to capture my gardens in color; the following pictures are categorized by the bloom time of the plants.  Most are perennials that return each year, a few are annuals that I plant to fill in the bare spots…

Most of the color in my garden in May comes from bulbs:

with a few perennials adding some early color:

The color in May is rounded out by the beautiful, sweet-smelling blossoms on my apple and plum trees:

June brings more color from more perennials:

as well as from shrubs, bushes and an ornamental tree:

The lush greenery in June provides a beautiful backdrop for blooming plants:

Next comes July with more perennials:

my favorite annuals and bulbs:

and lots of roses:

the beauty of roses is that their bloom time extends well into the fall; some of mine are still blooming the end of October!

August brings more color in the form of additional perennials:

Still in bloom in August are all the roses above, as well as the russian, purple and pink sages, tickseed, cleome, clematis and daylilies.

With September comes the addition of silver lace vine,  purple aster, ornamental grasses, and autumn sedum  to all of the above plants that are still in bloom;

It is currently the end of October, and many of the above plants are still going strong, especially the roses, thanks to the beautiful fall weather we have been experiencing here in the Ottawa area.

  1. thanks for the comment, i think the beautiful fall weather we had (unfortunately it is gone this week) played a huge role in keeping the plants looking so nice for so long.
