We are getting more rain now and the garden is loving it. We are all thankful for what we are getting after that long hot dry spell. I know the farmers are happy because the corn and soybeans were dying in the fields. I just hope it is enough and that the crops will not be stunted.
The hibiscus are blooming to take the place of some of the other plants now that are waning. This one was grown from seed from a sweet girl, April Johnson, aka Dirt Princess, from “ Trials & Tribulations of a Southern Gardener”. I do not know its name so I just call it ‘April’s Hibiscus’. She has met the man of here dreams and is going to be a mother now. I am so excited for her. Her Hibiscus grows in my friendship bed where I grow flowers that are grown from seeds that kind bloggers have sent to me. This bed is a favorite because it reminds me of the great gardeners I have come to known through garden blogging and when I look at their flowers it reminds me of them.
‘Vanilla Strawberry’ hydrangea continues to open its blooms. I is going to be fun to watch the blooms turn a strawberry color.
In an old pot some Portulaca or Moss Rose is the only flower that did not mind all the heat we have had this summer.
The Mimosa tree is finishing its bloom cycle. The bees enjoyed its puffy blooms.
I am joining in on Fertilizer Friday with our hostess Glenda From “Tootsie Time” so join us in Flaunting Your Flowers.
