Bloom Day August 2018

Every month on the 15th, Carol at May Dream Gardens shares her blog with windows to see other peoples bloom from their garden. Enjoy!

  5. Wildflower identification has never been a strong point for me, but Rattlesnake Master and coneflowers are two that I can readily pick out and enjoy seeing. The other plants in your garden are pretty amazing, too. Thanks for sharing.
