~~Bloom On, Summer~~














Wow -don't know where the time is going but I can't keep up with it! Where have I been? I've spent so much time with Ebay & on the dance floor that I can't seem to keep up with anything else ~~ But, I HAVE taken time to enjoy the last of my summer flowers ~ the blooms just keep blooming & hopefully they will keep on keepin' on awhile longer. I'm never, ever ready for winter & wish I could have a year-round garden~~

It's almost time to bring my house plants back inside which is a big job - I have a 30 year old ficus tree on the front porch that comes inside in the winter & several more larger plants & trees that I have to "make room" for inside. I would love to dig up everything that is blooming & bring it in! If I could I would!

For now though, I will enjoy my end of summer flowers & then wait, anticipate, & watch for them all to come up again in the spring! I will miss my angel watching over the pink periwinkles & zinnias, the red hibiscus, yellow maximillion daisy, red salvia, heavenly blue morning glories, four o'clocks (those are coming out my ears....lol - I will have a zillion seeds if anyone wants some), purple mexican sage, yellow esperanza, purple jack hyacinth beans, etc. They are still giving me so much joy ~~ and this weekend I will be on a Mums & Pumpkin Hunt! I really do love fall!

Wow Kathy! Your yard looks beautiful! Can't believe all of those blooms are at the end of the summer. Not much is still blooming were we live....fall is on it's way!

Oh Kathy, how beautiful! The flood just wiped out everything I had, I can only pray some of it comes back next year or its back to the drawing board for me!

Your Texas yard is so pretty. My garden needs rain right now but some things are still blooming.
The zinnias and coneflowers look pretty. I can't wait for Fall.
I live in East Texas. :) Bren

I love the photos of your yard!

One of my favorites is zinnia. They are such a great old fashioned flower. I had them in the garden at the farm. They're wonderful in floral arrangements.

Your flowers are beautiful! It has been colder here in the evening (Canada) yet the daytime is stil fairly warm...we are actually in Drought conditions, the first time I can remember...pray for rain! It won't be long til the snow flys here & the tender plants are on covered porch, in case of frost...
post ictures of your autumn flowers & pumpkins,,,I'd love to see them too!
Thanks

Oh how I love morning glorys! They remind me home. (Texas) I love all your flowers and your picket fence. It's all so beautiful!

Liz said...

Oh, what a gorgeous house and garden you have - because our `Seasons' are in reverse, it is a reminder of things to come, as `our summer' is just around the corner

Your blooms are still so beautiful! Just about everything here has sweltered due to the heat & drought. We have been under a watering ban. So all my pretty flowers have just dwindled away. I would love some of your seeds if you end up with enough to share or sell! Thanks for your offer!
