The August Garden

I'm still here, in case you've been wondering. Life's responsibilities and unexpected events (which always take priority over blogging) have left me with very little time or energy to compose a real post of any kind.

But, right now I find I have a minute or two to spare and a desire to share some photos of the beautiful flowers in our garden...because flowers have a way of making me smile, and I hope they'll do the same for you.

Esperanza 'Bells of Fire'

Giant Milkweed, also known as Crown Flower

Brazilian Buttonbush


Salvia 'Indigo Spires'
Are you smiling yet?


  1. The Crown Flower is one I've never seen. It's beautiful, as are all of the others. Thanks for prompting smiles today.

  2. Indeed, you brought a smile to my face, and heart.
    Thank you~

  3. Definitely brought a smile to my face :) Love, Love, these photos.


Thank you for reading and taking time to comment. I am encouraged by your kind words!
