  1. Nice to see that your spiderflower is still blooming. I think mine aren't getting enough water. Your phlox and azalea blooms are pretty.

  2. What a lovely way to begin the week. Thank you, Lea.

  3. All so gorgeous, and you remind me of things I need to plant again in the future...spiderwort is a favorite. Weather here in S. Wisconsin has been great all summer, but the 10-day forecast is truly heavenly: high 70s and low 80s. Sigh.

  4. I can pass on the 90s but your flowers were wonderful to look at, especially the azalea. We don't have any late flowering ones here in New York that I know of, although they may exist.

  5. A lovely variety of beautiful blooms and photos. Take care, enjoy your new week!

  6. Beautiful blooms. I love the altheas.

  7. What a beautiful Azalea. I have a yellow one that blooms earlier in the year. Your 'Red Heart' Hibiscus is beautiful, but I do love that white one. Hope you get a bit of rain Wednesday. Rain has been plentiful this August here. Look forward to those buds opening up on your 'Iceberg' rose.

  8. Lovely blooms! I especially love the phlox and Cleome.

  9. Your blooms are so lovely for the month of August. I especially like your Azalea and Phlox for their deep pinkish-purple blooms. We have had temperatures in the 90's here as well in the northeast (Long Island), which have finally subsided.


I enjoy your comments!
