Not much is blooming on the patio right now. Even the Black-Eyed Susans are drying up. The cone flowers are turning brown.
One lantana plant is still putting out blooms, thank goodness. These are hearty plants, but keep them away from your pets.
An occasional daisy sprouts up amid the other plants in the container to greet the sun. I love the floppy haphazard look of daisies.
Daisies have always been my favorite flower.
What’s not to love. So many varieties of daisies. So many colors. I have to watch myself every spring to keep from buying too many daisies and not having enough space to put them!
I’m not sure what this sedum is called, but it’s putting out tiny lavender flowers. They’re so delicate and pretty.
The patio critters are still giving Charlie quite the show. The squirrels delight in racing across the top of the fence to aggravate him. And it just drives him crazy.
The little Bewick wren above is small, but it belts out a loud song. You wouldn’t think such a sound could come from a small bird.
Is your garden lush or is it drying up this last hot week of August?
