The first picture was taken in June, the second one in September. A great many of the perennials bloom at the same time, but there is just enough that continue on, or bloom later, to keep me reasonably happy. I have a number of daylilies which are rebloomers, Phlox which has a long blooming time if I keep it deadheaded, and late bloomers like Snake Root.

The Tall Verbena (the purple to the left) has a really long bloom time, as does the Salvia. However, the Tall Verbena can be a real pest, too - pops up everywhere!! It is easy to pull, though, and I last year I sold a bunch of it at a plant sale my friend and I had.

Early on, I have bulbs blooming - some in the ground (as in this picture), but also quite a few in containers which I later remove and put at the back of my property so I don't have to look at the dying foliage (and the tulips do really well this way as they hate being over watered).
