This afternoon it is raining cats and dogs in the Sandbox and I am loving it. The Sandbox looks like a dustbowl because we have had weeks of little or no rain and parching hot weather. The air conditioner has been going non stop. I have no lawn left. I can’t tell if it is white grubs that got it or just the heat. We may need to reseed in September when it cools off and we get more rain.
In the mean time some of the flowers are doing really well and some are not. Here are the ones that are blooming at the moment. The echinaceas are beginning to bloom. I have a few varieties. The grey headed coneflower is new to the Sandbox. I love how the petals come out from the bottom with a lovely little hat on top. The purple coneflowers are winners every year. I have some scarlet runner beans travelling up an obelisk and here is one of the pretty flowers. The twelve spotted skimmer just sat there on a stem while I took his picture down by the pond.
I am using a mosaic template from the Coffeeshop blog and I used a texture from PixelDustPhotoArt called never seen before.
I am joining Mosaic Monday with our host Mary. Have a great week everyone.
