Middle of Summer Bloom

Middle of the summer bloom

       The spring and early summer bloom, at least locally, has abated. The late spring and summer bloom was moderate, mainly due to a short drought and high temperatures (105 degrees Fahrenheit for several weeks). These temperatures, although still reaching a hundred degrees, have since moderated and there has been rainfall at least in central Oklahoma. I hope for a beautiful late summer and fall bloom. The burned out areas from wildfires earlier this year are profusely covered with sunflowers and other species.
       Early summer flowers have disappeared, with the exception of a few Indian Blankets, and mid to late summer species such as various species of Sunflowers, Ironweed and Blazing stars are beginning to bloom. It looks like the beginning of a good late summer/fall bloom in central Oklahoma.
       For those visiting the site regularly I apologize for the lack of new additions this summer. Next week (now this week) I hope to start adding new species and “catch up”. Since I’m several months behind I will add earlier blooming species as well as currently blooming species and will label each accordingly.
       I’ve had received several emails and comments recently and would like to thank them and all visiting the blog and site for their support.
       In honor of “Sunflower season” I’m posting a creature found on the planet Theos which has a strange resemblance to the Common Sunflower found on Earth. Also see Homo sneakeaus.

Have a great summer

George Zabawa.
