Finally!!! Rain, sweet rain. And it has been a sweet rain, slow, steady and warm. I’m sure everyone in this area is so very thankful it has finally arrived. I know my garden and my lawn is very thankful and already showing it.
I like this particular lily although I don’t know the name of it. It has a ‘spider lily’ appearance.
This one I believe is called ‘Frans Han’.
These two pots of coleus was started from cuttings saved from last year.
BTW, the ‘sun face’ seen in the last picture was created and given to me by my friend, The Lurker, who you might remember, attended last year’s gathering at MsDeb’s. :)
These are coleus I started from seed this spring.
I started lots of impatiens this spring, as well, from seeds I had saved from last years flowers. Despite the lack of rain they have grown nicely…...probably bc I watered them regularly and the high humidity this summer. They loved it!
This charming little butterfly bush was started by a seed dropped in my garden by a bird. This is the thrid year it has bloomed profusely for me.
Here is another bird-sown flower….a phlox this time, growing not any where near any other phlox, and a colour I don’t have anywhere else in the gardens.
A new morninglory for me….Mexican MG. The seed was shared with me by a gardener in Michigan.
That’s all for now. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
