What’s In Bloom, August 22, Sandwich, MA
There were 120 flowers in bloom on my Cape Cod property yesterday. Not all made it onto the collage, and I probably missed a few.

What’s In Bloom, August 22, Sandwich, MA

Yesterday I spent about an hour touring our property and taking a photo of every plant that was in bloom. Okay, not every plant, and not every flower. I took one two photos of Hydrangea paniculata flowers, for example, but did not take pictures of all of the varieties I have in this species. Similarly, I didn’t shoot every type of rose or dahlia, nor all of the colors of zinnias. I did, however, take a picture of every weed that was in flower, and was a bit sad that some of my favorites, such as the jewelweed and goldenrod, weren’t blooming yet. Oh well…there will always be more flowers to open for such a hunt on another day.

After deciding to crop the photos square and put them together, I ended up running out of room. The photos below, and about a dozen others, didn’t make it onto my final image. Still, I have the file of 120 flower photos, a record of what was in bloom on that Saturday in August.

Calendula

Epilobium canum

Heuchera ‘Southern Comfort’

Phlox ‘Jeana’

Superbena blue Verbena

An unnamed Amaranthus
