Thursday gardening post

It's been such a hot and dry summer here that many of my plants are crispy. A few look good, though.

Last week I saw the first blooms on my morning glories. These are an heirloom variety that bloom a little later--but worth the wait!

A basket of purple somethings (don't remember their name).

A marigold basket. I grew these from seed.

Slightly jealous. I planted a couple of varieties of morning glories this year, and so far have only seen the plain white ones bloom.

Your flowers are gorgeous. You have a bright flourescent green thumb, Rene.

Very pretty. Every thing here is brown and crispy!

Very pretty flowers. The second looks like something you would find in the Alps!

Pure bliss

Lucy, zoning out in my lap. Look at her cute nose! Squee!
