My oldest laceleaf Japanese Maple thinks its fall. I think it got a little dry and so it decided it was time to change colors!
Is it spring? The rose bouquet in the oak tree fascinates me 🙂
There are at least six blooms up there!
It must be summer. All the annuals continue to thrive.
The white marigolds have finally started blooming in earnest. I put the short ones in too early this spring, and I think they did worse than if I had just been patient and put them in later.
I bought a new hibiscus a few weeks ago. Couldn’t resist, even though I know its not frost-hardy. Aren’t the blooms beautiful?
Beautiful, yes. But a bit too close to pink–Sophie was EXTREMELY interested.
Ha! A Sophie-proof container. Every morning she stops below the pot and stares wistfully up at the blooms. And then she goes and chomps down one of the little blooms on the Abutilon. Her look says “they’re not nearly as tasty, but they’ll do in a pinch.”
I am enjoying the garden and the cooler temps we are having. I hope you all take time to smell the roses along the way.
