Almost TGIF

Not too much going on in my gardens this time of year. Actually all of the gardens are looking puny and straggly since I haven't had any rain to speak of lately. Haven't been able this week to get the garden hose out since I'm having some plumbing done this week. Anyway just thought I'd share a couple blooms today.

Canna

Red vervena

Geranium

My Little Buddy

I love stormy clouds. Well I just love clouds but especially stormy ones. Wish I could say I got some rain out of this. It went all around me. Made for a nice photo anyway.




Hope you all have a great weekend.

Your Canna blooms are so pretty Becca. I love that ripple geranium. Such great colors together on the blooms. Have a great week!

My Cannas are just barely out ot the ground. No sign of a bloom. They were doing go well early and then it got so hot with no rain. They are doing well just to survive.

Love seeing Buddy. What breed is he?

I won't say that we have had a drought here, cooler then normal temps all summer. And I am not complaining about that one bit.

Hope that you get some cooler weather and a garden pick me up soon.

Maybe you will want to get a facebook icon to your blog. I just marked down the site, however I had to complete it manually. Simply my 2 cents.

Hey girlfriend, where you been? I was so glad to see a new post! Love the cloud pictures. They do make for a beautiful sky, even if they don't give us the rain we want!
Missed you! Take care! By the way, how's things? Ok?

Wish I could send some of our much needed rain but I wouldn't send our mosquito.
