My plants are all going crazy with the mild weather we have been having here this summer. This hibiscus was not loving all the rain we had, but now that we're getting some sunny days, it's blooming like mad.
I have no idea what this purple flower is, but I like it. I have a huge pot of it on my deck.
My black eyed susan vine in it's ever-expanding glory. I have to watch it because it keeps trying to make "friends" with all the other plants nearby. It's tried to choke every one of its neighbors. Maybe the Latin name for this should be "strangulata". Ok, I know nothing about Latin, for all I know that means something dirty, so I apologize in advance if it's offensive.
This one reminds me of a big church hat.
The double petunia is even starting to look sort of nice. I picked this out for the color combination, and finally the purple flowers have come back after a long absence. The orange and pink look better together when the purple is there too. I love the little lantern hanging down, though I haven't even lit it yet this year.
Here is the mini garden I planted out front. It's sideways and I don't know how to turn it... but you get the idea. I love the little red Gerbera daisies, but the rabbits keep coming by and munching them off. Then they just leave them lay. I guess they are not as tasty as they look.
The New Guinea Impatien and some mini wave petunias are trying to hide the gas line. It's a valiant attempt, but would take a large bush to accomplish.
I'm back to work tomorrow and will be looking at this every day, it's the view from my desk chair. It may not be a spectacular view, but it brightens my day. Have a great week everyone!
