It's August already! It's amazing how many flowers have already come and gone, and that some things are finally blooming. I've been waiting a long while for the lisianthus to bloom. It takes its time to mature, but boy is it worth it for these gorgeous rose-like blooms! The sedum pictured is Autumn Joy. Normally you see it in landscapes with its red/dark pink color, but I like to pick it when it looks like broccoli to add greenery to the bouquets.
