August bloom day scans

Hastily prepared August scans. But this time of the year, it’s not hard to pull together four scanner-beds worth.

Albutilon, Veronicastrum, Hibiscus, bloodleaf:

Eupatoriums, coneflowers, goldenrod. I have no clue what the yellow flowers are. The grow on 6-foot plants that a neighbor gave me.

July bloom day scans

I’m actually early to the party this time. With rain headed our way, I thought it good to go ahead and do this month’s scans. Click images for larger view. Apologies for lazy nomenclature and mis-IDs.

Update [7/15/2007]: As Layanee and Carol both pointed out, there’s a big article on scanning in the latest Horticulture (which has been sitting in my huge stack of unread gardening magazines). It’s by Ken Druse, so you know it’s gotta be good. (Print’s not dead. Sign up for a free issue of Horticulture.)

Monarda, Asian lily, sedum, spiraea, lychnis, Rosa ‘Cuisse de Nymphe’, allium, daucus, stachys (the other one), Scotch thistle.

June bloom day scans

I’m late to the party again. Sorry. Seems like it wasn’t long ago that I had to scour the garden to come up with a single scan. Now I just pick a couple themes and fill three scans without covering half of what’s flowering.

Mostly pinks and purples: Peonies, bearded iris, bearberry, violas, dame’s rocket, pinks, willow.

May Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day Scans: Cool (w/poll)

Too many things blooming to fit them all on one scanner bed, so here are the blooms from the cool side of the color wheel, more or less. (The warm blooms are here.)

I did them with a dark and light background. Take the poll below to let me know which you like best. Click on images for a larger view.
