Perfect garden weather… I have no excuses.

But still so much to do…. but have you ever heard of weather like this in Southern Indiana…..  weird….but nice.

Happy Gardening…….Brooke


  1. The flowers are absolutely wonderful. I love the sedums (especially the autumn one) and the grass. Good job!

  2. Wow, I love the roses and the hibiscus flowers. So beautiful. It's that a shocking pink coloured rose?

  3. What a great weather you have there! Our record heat wave is gone by now, but we need rains! Your blooms, Brooke, are fresh and bright! The last picture of the rose is my favorite. Send some rain to us!

  4. That yellow rose is to die for. Yummy. It looks good enough to eat.

  5. Rain every day here too. I love the way the red sedum looks next to the rocks. -Jackie

  6. Beautiful pictures! We've had lots of rain too but it's getting warm so things are growing and blooming fast. Please, remember to add a link to the Bloomin' Tuesday post. The link that shows up on Mr Linky was your last permlink not this weeks so also remember to change your link. Jean

  7. All of your flowers are just lovely- I am jealous of your rain- we are supposed to be in our rainy season in AZ this time of year and not much has fallen at all.
