Tigers, Skinwalkers, Apaches, and Princes. Oh My!

Yesterday was my first no bloom day since early June.  Today brought several blooms, including my very first Tiger Kitten.

And, after a few weeks of deformed Skinwalkers, today comes a picture perfect bloom.  I think the early blooms were premature.  What a great Ned Roberts bloom!

Apache Uprising made a huge show with three blooms.

And, how awesome it is to see my last two Royal Palace Princes in full bloom.

Stella also showed up to meet this crowd in the garden – both my golden and yella Stella.

And, calm little Orange Flurry was present in the background.

That leaves only two unbloomed cultivators . . .  Heirloom Heaven and Red Hot Returns.  However, that is not bad for mid-August.  And, nine total have unbloomed buds.  Will I make it until freeze?

This weekend, I start the work of fall mulching.  I’m learning more about promoting my rebloomers.  And, so more improvements in store for the future.
