I've been showing off my hydrangeas but I wanted to show you some of my other flowers that are in bloom here at our cottage.
I took this photo while I was mowing the other day. I have daisies to the left of the hostas there by the tree, and if you look carefully you can see our small chicken coop and one of the month old black australorps.
We have Japanese beetles this year again. They like my roses and my hibiscus, which is not a surprise considering they are in the same family of plants.
This variety of Rudbeckia is tall - these are right against the deck and I'm standing on the deck taking this photo. They are also the perfect country flower! So charming and long blooming. They look great cut too!
My poor potted plants! So much rain - the sweet potato vines aren't thriving this year.
The coneflowers, black eyed susans, hydrangea, and hibiscus are loving all the rain this year!
Something that has been snacking on the petals of my black eyed susan. Not nice!
We weeded out in this bed the other day and you wouldn't believe the amount of weeds there were! My little crew and I knocked it out in less than 30 minutes, early in the day before it got too hot and humid.
Can you see Rachel weeding my the picket fence?
Have a great day! We are going to have two much cooler days here! I think I am going to turn off the A/C.
So how about you? How are your summer flowers?
