Remember last week we told you we got a few inches of rain? Well, it's amazing what that did for our gardens! Let's have a quick look at some of the plants!
The Tomato Soup Echinacea is still going strong ...
... and the Becky Daisies are in another bloom cycle:
How can you look at daisies and not be happy? Oh. Speaking of "bee-ing"... check out who's visiting the Purple Emperor Sedum:
|Two bees (or not two bees -- ha woo!)|
The Ice Plants that we mentioned were trying to make a comeback were really happy for the nourishing rains!
Remember the ornamental grass Mom bought that the lady at the store told her would grow to be 14 inches high - but the tag said 14 feet? This is as high as Mom can reach on it now:
Good thing Mom always double-checks things, huh? Ha woo. It's making her very happy where she planted it - or I wouldn't have posted it on Serene Scenery Sunday!
The grasses Mom did plant beside the driveway, the Purple Love Grasses, are doing great!
They're starting to send their plumy things out -- if you look closely, you can see them! We'll try to get a better shot this week; they're really cool. They have tiny seed-like ends and look like purply-red explosions!
Also out front here are the PeeDee Gold Liriopes -- one has two flower stems on it!
OK ... let's move on to the sunsets - we've had some spectacular ones this week!
From the 26th:
The remnants of Hurricane Isaac was moving through our area, and he brought us some remarkable clouds! Mom took this shot down at the end of our street:
When we got home, Mom shot this off the deck:
The blue was the most remarkable shade of blue we've EVER seen! Blue is already our favorite color, but Mom and I just couldn't get enough of this!
The hurricane didn't bring us any rain, but just to our east they got a nice soaking!
We hope our photos helped bring a little serenity to your day!
