It’s time for the Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day again, yay! You know how much I love flowers!

Let’s start by checking out the backdoor container garden oasis on a recent afternoon:

Shadows nonetheless, I’m still happy with how the containers have performed all summer. They have been a joy.

Also a joy, the Cosmos flowers in front:

I sure will miss them when they’re gone.

More from the back – the Marigolds making me happy:

The Geraniums (somewhat) came back to life after a long absence this summer:

The Gazanias also came back to life after an absence:

Another fav is the Agastache:

My fall bloomers are still blowing my mind, the Zauschneria ‘California fuchsia’:

I have no regrets adding those to my garden.

Indoors, Candy, a Lime tree, is producing heavenly scents indoors:

Lady Evermore, an Aeschynanthus, has blooms but they don’t produce a scent. Which is ok, because she makes up for it in color:

And the Echeveria whose bloom is like the energizer bunny:

It’s so nice to have blooms indoors.

Judging by the buds on the Schlumbergeras, next month will be packed with Christmas Cactus blooms. Fingers crossed anyway.

So that’s what’s blooming in and around my casa. If you like flowers as much as me, you should check out Carol’s blog over at May Dreams Gardens. She’s the one who suggested we post photos of our blooms around the 15thish of each month. Thanks Carol, for hosting again.

I’ll be back tomorrow with photos from those of you who don’t blog but still want to share their flowers with us. If you haven’t sent photos to me yet, you have plenty of time. Just shoot me an email.

I hope to see all of you back here.

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
