As my daughter and I stroll around the shade garden, we notice the heuchera are still in bloom.

The pond is still pretty with waterlilies. And on the bank of the pond a succulent of unknown (to me) species has pretty white flowers.

And everywhere there are butterflies; I don't know all their names.

I look forward to visiting those two wonderful blogs to see what is blooming in other parts of the world. I hope to see you there.
Finally, I must show you a picture of a less-welcomed visitor to my garden. Black bears are common in the Poconos, but this is the first time I saw one so close to my house. He climbed the catalapa tree in the shade garden. The picture is a bit blurry because I took it through the screen in the den window.
Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day (a bit late)!
