|I bought this shrub last spring (Loropetalum "Purple Diamond"). |
It survived the summer
and now it's in bloom. I love it.

|A beautiful bi-color zinnia.|
|The big box store had these labeled as bell peppers when I bought these|
last spring - they turned out to be peppers of some sort - not sure what
to do with them - but they are pretty on the plate.

look pretty up against the wildflowers in the field beyond our

I have been absent from the blog world
for a while. First, I have a
new grandson, whom I went to see in
beautiful California and second - the
triple digit heat returned to Texas and I
just threw the towel in, so to speak, on
gardening and took up quilting inside by
the air conditioner. I just let nature have
it's way with the garden. Cooler temperatures arrived,
so I ventured out and took a few token photos.
|Our tree must be stressed. It has been raining leaves.|
The plan for today is to cut back all
the roses and give them some food and
hopefully by the time fall arrives I will have a yard full
of sweet scents and beautiful
color once again.

|Brandywine, an heirloom tomato, picked today. It was the|
largest tomato I have ever seen. This is our first year
to grow this one.
|Brandywine on the left and an average size|
tomato on the right. Hubby
cracked the tomato when
picking it, so we sliced it up immediately.
|Brandywine ready for eating. This|
is one tomato on a normal size dinner plate.

|Newberry Festival is such a gorgeous cranberry color and|
has very large flowers. It is a late bloomer, which extends
the daylily bloom season.
|This is Savannah Debutante, a double daylily, and also a late bloom|
|Here are some photos of other pairings for white|
zinnia. This is the first year I've grown Bachelor Buttons.
I can see the beautiful blue color from my kitchen
window. I think it shows up because it is in front of the white zinnia.
|You can't see in this photo, (it's not in bloom right now)|
but on the right of the zinnias is the Double Delight rose
and on the left is the Red Knockout.
|A returning sunflower. I just love|
the rust color on it.
