What's Blooming This Week - Rain in August - Hallelujah!

After a long, hot and very dry July, August is looking up in the garden. It rained! It not just rained, it poured! And not just once, it poured rain twice!


Hopefully the tomatoes will recover long enough to make tomatoes before the frost gets them. In the flower beds, the rain has revived a few plants so lets see what is blooming...

Pretty pink ruffled petunia
(looks like something else likes it too!)

Lantana blooms up close and personal

Cosmos from the "herb" garden out back

A cascade of fennel in bloom

Butterfly bush in bloom

  2. I love the Lantana blooms!

    What do you plant your fennel in with? I bought a fennel plant and have yet to put it into the ground because I read that not much likes living next to it.

  3. Tell all that rain you are getting when it gets through there, PLEASE come to Texas.

  4. Beautiful flower shots! love your herb garden!

  5. Cosmos in a garden are so rare. I love 'em!
