I'm joining Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursday's and Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday. So happy to find some blooms this morning so I could join you gardeners.
I was not impressed with the pentas when I first put them in the ground earlier this year but they are proving to be a wonderful performer. Tolerating our varying weather conditions from dry to too wet to the extreme heat we've had this year. I definately want more of this next year. I also love that they mound.
After clearing away some plants from in front of the geraniums they are giving me a few more blooms. This one is so hard to photograph and appears bright. I have to admit that from the road this one is easy to spot.
The okra hibuscus are not nearly as big as last year but I smile big when I can catch one blooming. Have to catch them early in the day because by the time I get home today this will be a memory.
The dahlias are blooming sporadically this year. They are not so happy with the weather. They are not happy when it is so hot and often times dry. I am needing some rain. Though it has rained a good bit I haven't had any in the past 8-10 days.
This is Bill McKnight Dahlia.
The beautiful Rose of Sharon is gorgeous. But they are like the okra hibuscus in that this will be a memory when I get home today. They are very tolerant of the varying weather conditions. I'm planning on moving both of the ones I have. As you can see the plant is still small standing only about 15".
I hope you all have a wonderful day and great weekend.
Just want to say that I appreciate all of you blogging buddies. It's a good feeling when I can get on here and share things with you and you all are right there rallying for me and praying for me. It also feels good when I just feel like complaining and you cheer me up. You remind me that I am not alone. I love you all.
Just and FYI my son has moved back to the area 30 miles from me and that is nice to have one of my kids near me. May not be for long - depends on finding a new job. He lost his job and housing when he was admitted to the hospital. I'm thankful that he was able to move into the home owned by his dad. He and the
bitch witch are divorcing. Thank you for your prayers.
