Blooming Tuesday - Mid August, 2011

Its Blooming Tuesday at Mrs. Green Thumb Jean's blog.We are creeping toward the end of an extremely hot and dry summer in Eastern North Carolina. We have watered our plants almost every single day!

Here are a few that are still looking pretty good.

Lavender Petunias:

Sweet Williams:

Yellow Four O'clocks:

A different view of the Zinnias:

Crinum Lillies:

This lime green Coleus has grown to be a HUGE plant!:

I love how these Gerbera Daisies mimic the ones on the flower pot:

I put these two pictures at the bottom so as to not freak you out too much!

We had a nice brief cool down this morning in North Florida. Your flowers look good, love the gerbera in the gerbera container. Those spiders are all over here too.

xo, Beth
