It's been awhile since I participated in the garden bloggers' blooms day, not for lack of blooms nor intention. Mostly for a lack of calendar-awareness. I thought I would focus on blooms from seeds I started earlier this year.
Pansy 'Morpho Blue'
Amaranth 'Oeschberg' variety
Teeny, tiny multi-colored coleus
Castor bean plant and it's developing seed pod
Nasturtium-'Black velvet' , not quite black, but ...
And finally, the first of the tomatoes-'Cherokee purple' heirloom variety
There are also some black violas that need to re-bloom but that might have to wait 'til next time.
