Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day – July 2010

I write lots of garden blog posts in my head, but since this is the first one making it to the blog, I don't feel I can claim the title of "garden blogger" yet. Still, I have to start somewhere - and I've been wanting to start Bloom Day posts for quite a while, after seeing the beautiful Hayefield bloom day posts every month for over a year now.

July is a good month to start - lots of beautiful things flowering in the yard! The most stunning are the 'Blackout' Asiatic lily flowers.

Then there are the volunteers...

And even a few ornamental flowers that we planted...

But my favorites are the food plants - beautiful and delicious in the same plant! :)

'Blondkopfchen' cherry tomatoes

'Spookie' pumpkin

'Alaska Mix' nasturtium

'Ambrosia' corn

'Neckargold' pole bean

'Blue Marbut' pole bean

'Sugar Snap' pea


Cinnamon basil

'Rattlesnake' pole bean

'Insuk's Wang Kong' runner bean
