Here it is the middle of August and time for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day at May Dreams Gardens.
But this month it coincides with Tuesday, so first a look at the South Border for the Tuesday View at Words and Herbs...
There are miniature roses...
Elsewhere in the garden...
An assortment of reds (clockwise from upper left): Hamelia patens, Calliandra californica "Baja Red", Russelia equisetiformis "Big Red", and Cuphea ignea "Vermillionaire".
The crape myrtles are blooming: Lagerstroemia indica "Rhapsody in Pink" and L. i. "Dynamite".
Two lavenders are flowering lightly: Lavandula dentata (left) and L. x intermedia (right).
Out in the White and Silver Garden, there are a few blooms.
And there are the roses, just beginning to offer a few blooms as summer slowly veers toward autumn.
And the ever-faithful Autumn Sages, here Salvia greggi "Flame".
Happy Bloom Day!
