Summer Flowers of 2008




These are some of the blooms from my summer flowers. There are rose of sharon bushes, hibiscus bushes and lots of lilies. There were really pretty this year.

Can't say the same for our garden. For some reason it didn't do all that well this year. Russ had a few tomatoes one time when he was home. But they seemed so small. I did put some through the blender with garlic and onion to use in sauces this winter...like spaghettie sauce, etc. We also planted potatoes and when Russ gets home next time, I'd like to dig up a couple of them to see what they look like. This is a first for potatoes. So we'll see how that goes. Next year's garden will be a tad bigger and designed better than the garden we had this year.



This climatis was really pretty. You can see Russ' big red truck in the back ground. We are hoping that he won't be driving for the big red truck company much longer. But I'll save that for another day.

Beautiful photos of your flowers, Judy! I was so glad that my Rose of Sharon I purchased after my mom passed away finally bloomed this year. I just love those plants!

Judy, these are gorgeous photos. Hard to believe that soon we will be into Fall, and a whole new set of colors.

Your flowers are beautiful, Judy. I especially love the lilies, but your clematis is outstanding also. I hope the first frost is a long ways off, I just hate to lose my flowers!

Jude - beautiful flowers. I believe you have Grma Vi's green thumb emerging. I was the one that she questioned about planting my African Violets with a layer of rock in the bottom for drainage. . . I'm sure you can imagine all the hooting, laughing and then the calm statement, "I never thought about planting them in ROCK", ha. How I miss her and her humor. your cuz

These photographs are sublime. I really will miss the summer flowers this year. But hey! there is the autumn flowers to look forward to, so it is no all bad.
