It’s hard to believe that the month of Aug. is coming to an end. Kids have headed back to school and cooler mornings and evenings are a delight.
I thought I would share what’s blooming in my August garden.
My friend, Kathy gave me these Canna bulbs. I have loved their beautiful blooms.
The hummingbirds have loved both the Canna and Zinnia blossoms. They are planted outside our family room window. A few times the hummers have flown right up to the window as if to take a peek inside.
My small black eyes have been so tall this year that I keep having to cut some down because they fall over.
This gorgeous Hibiscus delights me with new blooms daily.
Roses are coming back for a second showing.
Cosmos and miniature Hollyhocks.
I love it when friends come to visit. One morning I had these cuties pop in to say hi.
Some of them preferred higher ground. You can see that my Sweet Potato Vine is starting to trail down the rock wall.
My friend, Amanda gave me these starts of what she said was a perennial impatiens. I had never heard of them before. Love the sweet blossom.
Ice Plant newly planted this Spring.
I have been cutting back my annual planters and they are starting to put on a second show.
This one made me laugh. It’s easy to see that the left side is much happier than the right.
How does your garden grow? Won’t be long before I will be putting my beds to rest.
p.s. I want to thank Elaine from Sunny Simple Life for featuring the post I did about my friend, Diana’s playhouse.
I will be sharing with:
