Sandbox All Stars
Last year Bella of Bella’s Rose Garden offered anyone that was interested a packet of mauve poppy seeds that she had collected from her garden. I jumped at the chance of growing some in the Sandbox. They are just the palest shade of mauve. So pretty and delicate. I hope to collect the seed from my own crop and start them in all kinds of places for next year. I will have a much bigger display.
The Black Eye Susan or Brown Eye Susan or Rudbeckia ‘hirta’ is a native plant that just pops up here and there in the garden. I love the flower heads and the fact that it stands up to drought and heat just fine.
The red Zinnias are just so colourful in the garden. They don’t seem to mind all this heat and dryness either.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the wedding yesterday. I wanted so badly to share pictures but I know the Mother of the Groom will want to do that so you get more pictures of my flowers. There was a lovely downpour as we were sitting down to the wedding dinner and I was hoping that the rain was falling over the Sandbox but when we got home we found that it did not get here. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Can you believe that we begin the last week of July. It just goes by so fast.
