Welcome to another edition of Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. The 15th of each month, garden bloggers post photos of what's blooming in their yard at the time. Without further talk, here you go:
It has sort of finished blooming, but that it the ajuga I got off of craigslist for free. It has survived neglect from me, and too much attention from the chickens and is still chugging along...and spreading. It's planted in a narrow area between the driveway and a concrete divider so it won't spread past there. I found one growing in the grass on the other side of the driveway, one growing out of a crack in the driveway, and one growing 100 feet away, around a corner and at the front of the house!
Every year someone throws out a hibiscus that just needs a little TLC. I pick them up and give it to them, providing me with flowers the rest of the year. I found the tag for this the other day and it is called "President Red". Very appropriate.
I know I did a little of this last year and then it petered out. I'd like to do this every month, but it all depends on what is blooming. I have a better chance of doing this more now, since I have more plants...and more blooms.
