Bloom Day: August 15, 2012

August is the last full month of summer. Take time to enjoy the beauty and the blossoms around you.

Kristy Rustay, Pittsfield, Massachusetts:

Rudbeckia hirta, the Black-eyed Susan, also known as
Brown-eyed Susan, Brown Betty, and Brown Daisy
(Rudbeckia triloba)
are engulfing a ripening heirloom tomato. 

Cindy McFarland, Williamstown, Massachusetts:

Closeup of Killimanjaro Euphorbia, an annual that self-seeds like crazy
but is easy to pull out as a seedling and provides a splash of white all
summer, getting larger and better for another few weeks.

The euphorbia again with our first cosmos flower (late this year).

Our front porch with coleus up close, rosemary to the right, 
an upright fuschia behind, and impatiens in the back pot.
