Good Tuesday morning blogging friends. It's rainy here and has been for a few weeks now. You won't here me complain though. And it'll be OK when I get wet in the rain - I discovered that I don't melt. Go figure.
I'm gonna hook up today to a couple of memes so check them out at the end of my post.
It is hard this time of year to get anything interesting for you to see. Our gardens here in the south are mostly mundane with the same ole same ole this time of year. We are well into our summers here. So these are new photos of the same ole stuff blooming. A few I haven't shown in a while. Take a stroll with me...
The dianthus in all of the flower beds are blooming again. I absolutely love plants that are re-bloomers. Notice those pesky weeds there. They have roots three times the size of the weed. When I pull them often the root of the flower comes up and I have to pack it back down.
Red Verbena. All of my plants are happy with the abundance of rain.
I love this shade of pink verbena.
Portulaca is a good performer and multiplies and roots easily too.
Okra hibuscus. So far I haven't been able to get any seeds.
Bill McKnight dahlia.
This is one canna that escaped the dig up in the spring. All were transplanted but this one. I like that it is one plant but if I leave it here there will probably be 5 next year. The spot where I placed the transplants needs some tending and they will be blooming pretty too.
Ya'll go check out these blogs for more blooms: An Oregon Cottage - Tuesday Garden Party.
And Jean at Ms Green Thumb Jean for Bloomin Tuesday.
