GARDEN BLOGGERS BLOOM DAY

There is a bitty spider hanging out near the center of this bloom- which bloomed today!
Today my Disco Belle bloomed! I started this from a seed! It truly is amazing, 7 inches across ! Lovely, and on a plant that is only a foot and a half tall. I am looking forward to this perennial getting bigger and bigger as time goes by. Huzzah!
Also blooming, zinnias, roses, portulacas and petunias, a few last daylilies, red valerian, my monch aster, sunflowers, snaps, hollyhocks, purple sage, and a few other odds and ends.

I can't believe you got that bloom on such a small plant. It's lucky they didn't end up in the dirt.

By your list, it looks like you still have a good showing of blooms.

That's a stunning flower, and so much the better because you did start it from a seed. It is amazing.

Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!
