Fall Weather....in JULY!

 
 
 
Here in Iowa we have been enjoying "Fall"
with lows in the 40's at night
the windows are open
it's been a sleepers delight....
according to the weatherman
all must come to an end...
the humidity is back
the temperatures will be back to normal
so we are enjoying our last day.
the flower beds are busy blooming...

 
I added a few more flowers and junk too!


 
the daisy's are all blooming.....
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 




Lantana




Petunia's




Geranium's






I have lots of Lilies .....so many yet to bloom
 


 
 





 
I thought it was interesting how the petals of this one folded back so much
 
 
I found a new color of cone flower
this one has a peachy bloom that turns more pink as it ages
 
 
 
I am even growing color coordinated mushrooms......
 
 
 
Phlox an old time favorite
 
 
 
 
New for me this year   Hen and Chicks

 
I love coral bells and have many varieties of them
They are a favorite of the hummers too
 
 
 
 
I always leave some milkweed for the Monarch's
first come all the little bugs
the Monarch was fluttering around the plant last night

 
 
 
Marley says thanks for stopping but we really need to play ball now.....
 
 
 
 
 
 I just have to add this one.....even after dark the gardens are beautiful

  2. Beautiful flowers! Would you like to come plant my garden? Mine is pretty bad. We had the fall weather last week and it felt so nice. We will pay for it this week though.

  5. Your flowers are all so pretty - I just love all flowers! And I really love what you did with your cabinet! Aren't you glad you didn't throw it away? I have been loving this cool weather - sounds like it will be a hot one today, but then cooler again tomorrow - yay!
