Floral Friday - A Few Blooms

Happy Friday, and Happy Fourth of July Weekend!!! I just wanted to share a few bloomers with you, and a couple of other things, too.

First, the garden phlox is just blooming and blooming, and there are tons of babies coming up around the bottom. Obviously she's a happy camper!

The squash are still blooming, and being pollinated by the bees, but I think the bunnies must be enjoying the squash, because I'll see them at about 2-3 inches long, then they disappear. First chance I have, I'll be putting circles of flour around the plants to keep the bunnies out.

The white foxglove's big, main stem is done, but there are bunches of smaller stems blooming, and it's so pretty!

The cleome is blooming, and I just love that purpley rose color! Many people know these as spider plants. They re-seed very vigorously, so I hope to collect a bunch of seeds later on.

This is a bud from the burgundy hardy hibiscus. Those blooms just burst open over night!

And this is how they look once they open - aren't they gorgeous??? The blooms are about 5 - 6 inches across.

And just a quick photo of my tomatoes! Can't wait until these 'Pink Girls' are ready to eat!

Well, that's all for today. I hope to have a make-over project to show you in a few days. We got my dad home from the hospital yesterday, and he seems to be feeling better for now. Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers! Have a blessed Independence Day! Becky
