Can you believe it's the middle of August already? I'm not ready for summer to end. Fortunately the garden is keeping me entertained.
I was happy that my camera was handy when I spotted this little visitor.
|This website says he's a "Male Green Metalic Sweat Bee"|
|It was cute watching him hunker down looking for pollen inside this fuzzy, huge|
|Chinese Foxglove (Rehmannia elata) is still blooming.|
|Passiflora 'Lady Margaret' has two blooms!|
|My Sweet Peas are still putting out a few blooms. I was surprised to see this bi-colored one.|
My Dahlias are looking fine. Except the ones that aren't. Which I won't photograph because it would be pointless.
|Dahlia 'Junkyard Dog'|
|A single, tiny Jewels of Opar flower. (Talinum paniculatum)|
|I'm hoping it will reseed.|
|Hibiscus moscheutos 'Disco Bell White'|
|Phygelius x rectus 'Pheeges Passionate Pink'|
|Rosa 'Rhapsody in Blue'|
Here is a few wide shots of the north end of my garden.
I hope you are enjoying your garden too.
