What's blooming?


Despite the scorching hot sun and very little rain, we still have some blooms in the garden.

black-eyed-susans, impatiens, verbena


And, of course, the Crape Myrtle are blooming and beautiful.

What do you have blooming?

Not much, sadly. The geraniums are putting out a few blooms. The vines are doing a little better. Mostly I have the old tried and true portulaca and purslane blooming. My black-eyed susans have kind of piddled out.

Donna, your flowers look beautiful! I've got some phlox, Heliotrope, impatiens, dianthus, petunias, hostas and a hanging geranium blooming at the moment. I water almost every night though! The crape myrtles in the center courtyard look so beautiful here too!

Beautiful garden photos, Donna! Love the verbena!

It's amazingly hot here too. We had a heat index of 112 yesterday and it's supposed to be even hotter today. I have wave petunias, knock out roses, impatiens, glads, black eyed susan, and zinnias. My cone flowers are played out.

Hey Donna, your flowers are so pretty. I got my bottles at Hobby Lobby. I eventually want a bottle tree, but am still looking for the stand. They were 1/2 price when I bought them $2.50 is what I paid??? Have a great day!

Your flowers look very pretty.
I'm so thankful for the crape myrtles. They are putting on the best show in my yard right now. I also have limelight hydrangeas, black eyed susans, zinnias, lantana and impatiens. I have a giant moon vine without any blooms, a hanging basket that just got thrown in the trash and 3 zucchini plants that bloom, but refuse to produce squash. Have you ever heard of not being able to grow a zucchini? :) Good thing I enjoy gardening as it can be a challenge.

I'd have to say that the black-eyed suzans are my favorite! August is the best time for blooming flowers (if you've been a good water-er!!)

Beautiful flowers dear Donna.;) We had a very warm July but August is very unstable and rainy, thus a lot of bloom is everywhere.;)
Have a lovely week,
