Seasons of Summer

Time for a quick stroll around the patio garden. It was hot over the weekend so that is my inflatable pool chair behind the hibiscus.

This is one of my $2.00 clearance finds from one of the big box stores. It is a mounding annual vinca vine.

Another clearance find. This is called pentas. I wasn’t familiar with this one but I am enjoying it.

The coleus growth is slow this year but they do provide a lot of color.

The Peruvian lilies are getting their second round of flowers.

Mandevillas are a perennial favorite at our house. Pun intended.

The hydrangeas are becoming quite spectacular. This one is a little confused. It is part bluish purple and part pinkish. This might be good for a yin-yang theme.

Here is a picture of our newer flower bed with Cassius lounging in the background.

The roses are doing fine and as you can see, it will soon be the season for gladioli.

Summer is good to measure in mini seasons, for maximum enjoyment. Lily season, rose season, glad season, and so on. There is always something to enjoy, and something to look forward to.
