Summer Flowers



Our summer flower garden is in full bloom. Here are some of our favorites, including the crepe myrtle above.

  1. What a lovely "stroll" through your garden this morning! And, to have a bee pose for the photographer is just the right touch.

    Best,

  4. My garden is full of beautiful blooming things, but you have just reminded me that crepe myrtles are the one thing that don't grow in Maine that do grow in Houston. By the time we return there they will be completely gone and I will have missed their lovely blooms.

  7. What lovely flowers you have, and I am so glad to see the bees doing their work. Especially since the last few years they have had their problems. We need our bees if we are going to have flowers and fruits, and honey.

  10. Sam, Beautiful flowers indeed! Our cone flowers attract bees and butterflies like crazy... Laurie bought a number of flowering plants for our deck this year where they're visible right out our dining room window. A deer recently came through and ate about 80 of her hostas...Last year they didn't even last this long! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  11. Beautiful flowers, Sam. My garden is suffering this year because of the heat. The flowers don't last long.

  14. First of all Sam, you summer garden is alive, beautiful and THRIVING! The sign of good gardener who can create beauty in the most challenging of flowering seasons! You husband has quite a talent behind that lens! He must be a professional! And crepe myrtles, my all-time summer fave . . . it never fails to bloom no matter how hot it is here! Glad you enjoyed the fried green tomatoes post . . . you're so lucky to have had so many delicious things to eat growing up in the South!
    Hugs,

  23. I am going to have to get some tips from your in house photographer. Beautiful! The photo with the bee is priceless. What a beautiful perennial garden you have going on the fence. We have some cone flowers in the perennial garden but they look nothing like yours! beautiful color.
