Hello friends...it's raining! We have not had any significant rainfall in quite a while and my plants and flowers are really struggling to survive. But I woke up this morning to the lovely sound of rain..a nice slow and steady rain. Hallelujah!!
These are the begonias I bought during my Amish weekend in April. I have never been able to grow begonias, but my luck changed this year. These beauties have bloomed constantly all Spring/Summer and now into the Fall.
Any Orange flowers get my vote! You can see the leaf stress as the edges got crispy and brown.
My basil is loving the bath...perfect for my Tomato & Basil soup.
The colors are so intense on these begonias that it is difficult to photograph them. They always end up looking fluorescent.
I adore Marigolds and these are courtesy of my bird friends. Now if I can only get the birds to seed all my flower boxes next year ;-)
Oh yes...I absolutely believe flowers can smile!
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
