Bloom Day Rumble

My day at the Almighty Falls was cut in half by a sudden and persistent downpour. There has been a lot of rubber lining going on and in that downpour I watched the falls come to life just above the pond. There is already a foot of water in the pond. I may not need to fill it myself if this keeps up.

It was still raining when I got home. The garden is looking mighty fine, but at this stage of the Tall Flower Meadow, walking it when wet is a drenching affair even after the rain stops.

Something is blooming out there for Bloom Day no doubt.

Then the sun came out and the steam rose in sheets before the next pour arrived.

The roadside chicory is blooming, but that has to be photographed in the morning. It closes by noon on a hot sunny day. Coming home early and seeing it closed is a sign that the sun had been out during the first part of the day.

The Queen Anne's Lace is having a very abundant year in the roadside vegetable garden with the wild flower surround.

The sun was out, but there was imminent rumbling all around, much like the garden is now, a wild flower rumble.

Follow the trail of daylilies into Bulbarella's domain. I'll wait until it dries out again.

A change is taking place in the Voodoo Lily. I may get some blood red in the chalice after all.

So far the sweet smell of the pretty lilies is winning the war of scents.

The garden rumbles on with new players coming on stage as the past contestants fade away. It is an ever changing kaleidoscope.

Joe Pye is forming flower heads for the Bloom Days to come. For now there is plenty more Bloom Day at May Dreams Gardens. Stop in and have a look around.
