What happens around these parts in August is that usually most of your flowers dry up. The zinnias have only been blooming about a month. I’ve so enjoyed cut bouquets to bring inside.
I find this flower so incredibly intricate! The passion vine has just taken off since last summer and is sprouting up all over the yard.
Morning glories are a pretty hardy bunch too. Since they tend to close up before the afternoon heat hits. Next year I’ve got to remember to buy blue ones. These just came back from last year. And are a rich velvety purple.
The zinnias already know it’s nearly time to fold up camp. Though they haven’t been blooming long, their tall stalks are turning brown. August is hard on the flowers.
And I can’t leave out the cannas that I moved from the side of the house last year and now are everywhere. They keep on keepin’ on too. Multiplying at a rapid rate.
I so enjoy them all while they’re here. Showing off their blooms, heads faced toward the sun. But for everything there is a season.
And when August rolls around, kids are thinking about going back to school. Mothers are gearing up for car pools. August means change.
Thank goodness I have them captured in pictures to enjoy all year long.
