Summer Blooms On.....

I am SO not ready for Summer to go! It's been a good one ~ my flowers linger on & for that I am glad. I have an over abundance of 4 O'Clocks this year but it's one that I love so much & their perfume is heavenly.....

The mini pond bloomed with water lilies......

Pretty pot of Mom's Impatiens on the front porch.......

Esperanza "Yellow Bells".....

The Blue Mist was covered with Butterflies all summer long....


A single Jimson Weed flower......so delicate & pretty

This was my first year of success with this gorgeous lavender Obedient Plant from a starter plant out of mom & dad's garden ~ mixed in with pretty Red Turk's Cap....

Obedient......I love their spikey tops


More 4 O'Clocks on the picket fence.....

A big surprise flower this year is this lovely white Jimson Weed ~ pretty much a baby plant last summer, it has turned into an enormous bush, covered with large creamy white flowers ~~ I lost count at 100 buds & blooms.....the picture above shows the buds about to open, picture below was the same evening just after dark, & the bottom picture was the following morning ~

Jimson Weed after dark.....

Jimson Weed the following morning......Lovely!

Now I plan to get ready for fall ~ bring on the Pumpkins, Golden Leaves, & Candle Glow! xoxo

such a gorgeous garden. I know you want summer to stay, but I also know how you love to decorate for fall and I can hardly wait to see what you do with your yard and house!
love you!
