Not to be left out of the big doin’s, here’s my little upload for Bloom Day, July 2009-a small selection of what is blooming in the garden at Ranch du Bois. It is blazing hot and hard to photograph all the lovelies right now. Heck, its hard to even LIKE the lovelies when it is 100 degrees in the shade.

    Nice! Those apricots look absolutely yummy!

  2. A very nice showing from Idaho, even though it is hot. Now, will those apricots hold up to shipping to Indiana?

  3. It does look some kinda good, my friend.~~Dee

  4. Those intense colors stand up well to your intense higher altitude sunlight. I love them. The last photo is great, showing off your design and hardscape wonderfully softened by billowing plants. Just lovely.
