|We were spared the wrath of Isaac. Overcast with rain on and off is all we have experienced so far. Prayerfully we won't have any flash floods this afternoon. Along with all the rain we have received this summer have come the pesky, blood sucking, West Nile infected mosquitoes. I spent less than 10 minutes outside this morning and was bitten on both my feet The photos are blurry and slightly foggy from the humidity. Here is my contribution to Bloomin' Tuesday.|
|Cardinal Vine or Cypress Vine - I have recently learned there is a slight difference in the two. The foliage is a little more feathery and the seeds a bit more slender on one, other than that no differences. Either way the hummers enjoy both of them the same. Invasive here, it will smother any plant close by. You should keep an eye out when growing this "in" the garden.|
|Knockout Rose - Yellow....|
|Cordyline in the back left, this is it's third year here. Cordyline and blue Fescue grass in the container. I love Fescue.|
The potato vine in winding it's way through all the plantings and containers in this garden.
Grocery store rose.
|Heirloom Coneflowers, forefront. Turk's Cap has become more shrub like. I will be taking cuttings to propagate over the winter as this plant is not only a Texas Superstar , in my book it's a Florida Superstar.|
When I planted this Juniper in the fall 2010 it was barely visible in the container. It has grown faster in the container than the ones I planted in the ground.
|Firespike is looking good. I have about 6 or so propagated in this flower garden, there is also a couple of purple ones yet to bloom. A gift from a fellow southern gardener.|
|Still making jewelry..|
Have a Blessed Day!
