We've had such a rainy summer and it's brought beautiful shades of green to my flower garden but at this point it's beginning to yellow from so much rain. The day lilies are at their last hoorah. A simple little gerbera is smiling this morning and this liriope is sharing it's shade of lavender. The tomato leaves have mildew but while they were producing tomatoes we had bowlfuls each day. Looking forward to the mums. They have taken over the one bed. You can see them around the gerbera daisy. Should be blooming sometime next month.

October and yes those summer flowers are seeing the end of their season. Here's a pic taken yesterday of the daisy mums. No work needed. Plant, they take over, and rise every fall.

Redchaz57, I love gerbera daisies, too! (third picture) These (last pic) look so much like them but are actually daisy mums. There may be a better name (botanical) but my mom bought them and then gave me two plants. You can see how they have returned with a beautiful vengeance! I'm hoping bringing the bougainvillea into the garage on cold nights this winter will keep it going strong. Need to read up on that.

When we did mission work in the Bahamas (a tough job but someone has to do it, right?!?! Seriously, wonderful gracious people whom I adore), the bougainvillea grew wild almost everywhere ... so delightful and beautiful! Also, the poinciana (a tree) ... I wonder if it grows in NW FL? You would love it!
