Flower Flaunting, August 9, 2011

While preparing this post I am reminded of the hail which befell Tootsie's garden this week...how sad that must have been!
We have had lots of sunshine this year, and we will have a huge water bill, but the plants are coming along nicely.
This morning I picked a few flowers for a bouquet:
These are the flowers I have included...

Limelight hydrangea, Endless Summer hydrangea (blue and pink), Incrediball hydrangea, David Austin pink rose, dahlias, buddleia (butterfly bush), and hosta buds
Out in the garden the gloriosa daisies are glorious!

The mandevilla vine is stretching up to 6 feet tall and still twining...

The pink plant I showed you before is more full...that thing just never stops!

We have been enjoying our tomatoes...this photo has no ripe ones, ...because we've eaten them!

Now head over to Tootsie's and see what other folks are growing...

Hi Millie, What a gorgeous arrangement! Such pretty flowers and colors together. We have been enjoying tomato sandwiches the past few days; your plants look very healthy. I'm taking an extended break from posting but I'll still be visiting with you. Take care.

Your flowers are so beautiful!!! I love them all, I didn't know that you have a David Austen Rose bush, they are so gorgeous.
Have a good weekend, more sunshine on the way!
