I know us gardeners we love all shades of green….
But let me tell you friends…. I have COLOR!
Bright beautiful bursts of blue and yellows….
Glowing pinks and corals….
Does it get any better than blue blooms…. I think not. (Clary Sage)
These vibrant colors are such a nice treat….. (Hollyhock Queenly Purple)
They almost make all the heat and humidity bearable.
The candy lilies are in full swing…
Just plant the little black seeds where you want them and in one years time you will have a plant like this. I now have them everywhere from one afternoon of sprinkling seeds.
Here is one I hope to have a whole bunch more of…. Kim’s Knee High Coneflowers…. it is late July and they are still only about 14 inches tall…. I love these!!!! They advertise 50 blooms on one plant, and I have to tell you…. they might be right. It is just spilling over with blooms.
Look close and see my butterfly friend….
Snacking on one of my favorite combinations phlox and seed verbena. Colors that cannot be beat on these hot, hot, hot summer days.
Stay cool fellow gardeners…. and might I suggest hitting the ice cream isle… you deserve it!
Or be like me and get a strawberry banana smoothie from McDonalds…. they are not as good as Orange Julius’ but I don’t have to drive as far either! Here is a recipe I found that claims it is the one they use….
1 (12 ounce) milk (skim is fine)
1 (6 ounce) frozen orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup frozen strawberry, pineapple and bananas, in pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3 ice cubes
2-3 ice cubes
It sounds pretty good to me!!!
