Roses are red violets are blue.....what's left in your garden....:0)
This pink hibiscus has grown huge this year and it is currently loaded with these giant beautiful flowers! It is hard to believe it's doing so well in this horrible heat.
I still have a good number of roses
cannas along my back fence
The petunias are still going strong - I love these guys.
Orchids and bromeliads - from one corner.
Maire, Caryopteris. ... spell check at it again, no doubt.
Lots of zinnias and a few other things the deer haven’t munched on, but the beautyberry is really showing off. And the birds were all over it this morning.
thanks jtc - I went back and corrected it.
These 2 sedums are at their peak.
Sedum 'Morchen" Loved by the bees.
and the Rudbeckia that has taken over nearly all the beds.
My beauty berry was loaded last year, and it seems to be doing a repeat this season. I have two, the other is a bit older and growing in a not so ideal place but still happy. It produces berries, but not as heavily.
Did someone here post a recipe for beauty berry jelly? I remember reading it and thought about sharing it with my jelly making neighbor. Apparently I didn't save the recipe. Maybe I read it somewhere else online? In a way I hate to have her strip the shrub of all those gorgeous berries as I'd think it would take a lot to make some jelly.
...some empty corn stalks, following visitation by coons.
Some cobs they ate pretty well completely, but some only partly, and some weren't ripe yet.
But there were only a few stalks. A few years ago, there was quite a lot of corn, and they pulled off many cobs, took a bite or two, then left that one and pulled down another. I think that I took quite a few to church, saying to husk the ears, cut off the chewed part and a little bit outside that area, and the rest, that had been covered by husk, was edible ...
... and that they'd be stewing them, anyway, so not to get into too large a stew about there being a bit of depredation by coons.
It's 93º here and things are fading fast. I was surprised by how much is still in bloom.
sweet autumn clematis
Finally, joe pye weed. I've had 3 stalks for a few years now, thanks to a volunteer. But this year, they spread considerably and I have a nice little row of them. I love joe pye weed. I planted it in my yard when I lived in Baltimore. So happy to have it here.
joyfuel, you are a hoot. Sorry about your corn,tho.
outside, have you ever made jelly with them?
Cosmos (and tomatoes)
regarding yeonassky's first flower
"My God, It's full of stars"
LOL, my thought was "who spilled the bleach". Gorgeous flowers!!
Houzz wouldn't let me edit - so I deleted the photo and I'll repost with the correct spelling, and of course it's still sideways.....
