My July Beauties

July is hot…and sometimes with heavy rains which just run off and leave the soil dry again. 
I water my garden couple of times per week just to keep my plants somewhat hydrated.  
Today I will share some of the currently blooming flowers, which I just adore visiting every morning to check on the new ones opening up.
It makes my day the coffee does for others….:-)

My Autumn Flower Garden

As the Autumn days are getting shorter and shorter, my flower garden is getting skimpier and skimpier.  Actually as I am writing this post, some of the flowers displayed here already have fallen victim to the frost we had couple of days ago.  I covered up the Canna Lily, so I still can enjoy their gorgeous blooms for a while, and the Hardy Mums will last until a real deep frost, so hopefully that will not happen until mid December.

Below is my selection of Hardy Mums I planted this year, since last year’s plants were not hardy enough to survive the winter, with the exception of the Yellow and Buttercream Mums.

Flower Garden – Very Special Additions

This year I added a patch (pictured here) with a mixture or perennial and new annual flower plants, which I grew from seeds from Europe, sent to me by my sister.

This patch is very special to me, since every time I am out gardening, I think of my sister and my mom.
