Oh I just cannot believe the alarm actually went off a few minutes ago and the school bus will be coming to our drive…. Aug 13th is way too early to start back to school. Yesterday we set a record on heat and it was 101 here in southern Indiana. I took the girls out to pay school dues and get the rest of there supplies and it was miserable. I have only been watering in the evenings and pulling a weed or two when I get the mail. I am so ready for it to cool down. But all in all, the garden doesn’t look too bad surprisingly.
This is my favorite vine, hyacinth bean that I grew from last years collected seeds. It is late summer before it takes off, but very much worth the wait. It looks very good growing up posts and birdhouses… :)
I have removed so many hostas up the front walk, but the lilyturf is enjoying the sun it is now getting. This is a forgettable plant until it blooms. I love anything purple.
As you can see here with moss verbena… which I have planted seed for every year, but now it is coming back on its own. I need to cut it back, but it is blooming so pretty, I just let it go!
Coquette des Blanches is a nonstop bloomer for me.
Tamora, an Austin rose is fighting blackspot, but still lovely.
All 15 of my The Fairy roses are blooming….they are a mass of soft pink and whites.
I still have a pretty good display of daylilies. I think this one is called Smoke Signal. it is a beautiful peach and new to me this year.
These last two I am not sure on the names…. but they have ruffles and I love them.
This one was suppose to be cream, but it looks very yellow to me.
Red Heart Althea looks so pretty against the blue sky. It too has bloomed for weeks, I cannot ask for any more than that.
Hubby is still healing from his DVT and very sore. Hoping to start physical therapy next week if we can get the pain under control. It has been a long road, and it looks like at least 3 more weeks of him being home. Who knew a simple knee surgery and he would be down 6 weeks? Thank god for insurance and my job being flexible so I can take him to appointments.
Everyone have a great weekend, and good start to school for all the teachers and kiddos. I doubt they get much done today, but it ought to be a fun day seeing all their friends again.
