Flowers!!

Wow we are now officially in the last week of August. How depressing!

Tomorrow is going to mark week 15 in the garden. I am surprised daily that everything is growing so quickly. I think the dry hot weather we had this year may have had something to do with it!

Today I just thought I would post about some of the flowers around the yard. Some I have planted and most are perennials that were likely planted many years ago. I don’t even know the names of some of them. If you do please let me know!


First we head out to the island flower bed in front of the yard. There we have
These...no idea

Nicotina I think and one little daisy

This is my lone brown eye Susan (I think that is what it is) I usually have about a hundred. I think the giant tree that fell into the flowed bed might have something to do with them not blooming.

These are the second cut prairie lilies. The first ones of the year bloom upright in July and then upside down in August

Then we move onto the garden.
My lovely sunflowers

Bachelor buttons

Not sure

Zinnias

Marigolds

These next pictures are from the “wild flower” seeds I planted. I have no idea what they are.

  2. The bottom one is California Poppy. The top one in the "wildflower" section looks like another bachelor buttons only pink. That's about the extent of my knowledge about flowers! They are all very pretty.
