I've tried a few times on some blogs to comment and blogger is being very selective today. Anyone else having a problem?
Hooking up today with Jean at Ms Green Thumb Jean
http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com/ for Bloomin Tuesday and with An Oregon Cottage for Tuesday Garden Party. http://www.anoregoncottage.com/
I am finding a little color left in the gardens. They are the same ole plants as I've been sharing for a while now. Darla has stated and I agree that it is challenging to find anything interesting in the gardens this time of year. I am hoping I get the planning down pat so that I might have a more interesting gardens next year.
The pink vervena is definately a stand out and am sorry that I didn't purchase a flat of these. I only bought one pink one. sad face.
The red verbena is also a show stopper. I put down 4 plants of these and am wishing I had more. Any plants that are still blooming are keepers for next year and will add more. The plan is to put down a couple more garden areas. Keeping the fingers crossed I get this accomplished in the fall to better prepare for spring.
I have quite a few patches of the white dianthus and am really loving the dianthus this year. The white glows at night.
Happy to see another bloom on the Endless Summer Hydrangea.
Begonias were the show stoppers last year. But the plants that I have are hanging on and keeping their blooms.
The bougainvillea is still holding onto a few blooms.
Critters in the garden. What is this?
What is this little fellow? His wings never stopped. Reminded me of a hummer.
Look at the roots on just a couple of the weeds I complain so much about. Can't shake it back into the garden since it is loaded with these spider roots. Will be adding more soil to the gardens when I get ready to put out seeds for next year.
I love interesting clouds and I love rain. Thought I'd share what our weather has looked like lately.
And yes it brought some much needed rain.
Hope you all have a great week. I'm thinking of you guys in Texas. That is some HOT weather you are having.
