Flowers and early eveing

Good morning! And Welcome August!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours was delightful as our HOT and HUMID weather finally broke and we have had a few days of low 80's with almost no humidity. I am LOVING it, but today the humidity and 90's return. Well, it IS August, right? The other night, I went out to water so took some shots around the yard. My hydrangea bushes are blooming beautifully. These pink ones are so beautiful!
 This is a water hibiscus. We have 2 plants at the edge of the pond, one IN the pond and one in a pot on the patio. The blooms are as large as a dinner plate!
 This is the bud, before it opens.
 My pots on the patio wall are doing well. Usually at this time of year they start to look a little tired.

 The limelight hydrangeas are about at their peak. I am cutting some in various stages of color to dry and preserve. They are so pretty in Fall arrangements.

 I THINK these are called Japanese painted fern. They are lacy and compact.

 My container on the deck table is really going crazy!
 When I came inside I took some shots as it is such a pretty time of night.
 I changed up the mantle last week. I like the lighter, airier look.

 This is my comfy space. I sit here when it is too hot to go out and read. I love sitting out on the patio to read too, when it is comfortable:)
 Then I took some shots of the sunset. The colors didn't show well: they were a very BRIGHT orange in the sky. Just so beautiful!

Thanks for your visit.
XO, Pinky

  1. Your plants/flowers are just gorgeous, Pinky. Everything looks so lush there. I didn't get nearly as much gardening done this year as I wanted to--but I guess there are only so many hours to do the things I want to do.

    I sit inside on those hot, hot days, too. Hope you have another beautiful sunset tonight- xo Diana
