A Pretty Garden

By , August 26, 2007 10:23 am

So many wonderful things are happening in my garden right now. While gardens in other parts of the country begin to tire at this time of year, gardens in the Southwestern US take off. Monsoon rains bring the much-needed “real” water to the garden. Hose water simply does not produce the same results.

Here are some pictures:

A Hollyhock

 

Wave Petunias in a flower box…and Pipsqueak

 

My mixed border finally takes off

 

Sexy Rexy roses by the front door (surrounded by scented geranium foliage)

 

California Poppies

 

The weeds are loving life too

 

At least many of the weeds are actually lovely wildflowers such as this wild penstemon!

    wow those are great shots. Your weeds HA. OK the white one is daisy fleabane OR oxeye daisy? Now the long red one I never saw. It hardly looks wild. It’s exotic. But you aren’t shriveling up at all over there. We still have lots of flowers but it’s almost over.

    Your flowers are beautiful! I love the mixed border and poppies in particular. And of course the weeds must flourish along with everything else- at least you got some pretty, flowering ones!
