'Ellen Bosanquet' Crinum is an old Southern favorite. Rains trigger bloom.
The spoons full of lime I gave nearby lilies and such caused some pretty pinks in the usually blue Hydrangeas after those soaking rains.
Pineapple sage is out of bloom behind this Crinum . I expect fall bloom from it.
A few sprigs of Pineapple sage makes a fragrant garnish for fruit salad.
My intention for Bloom Day is to just feature Tropicals so the post isn't so pic-heavy y'all pass by without looking past the first one or two. Lilacina Crape Myrtles finally burst into bloom after red and pink finished their first round of blooms. Pride of Barbados and Esperanza are fitfully blooming; they seem to wish for some long hot days without rain. Crocosmia is everywhere, it's Everywhere.
