My flowers are starting to bloom, here is the "flower tower"--
There are two varieties of Morning Glory--Grandpa Ott and Heavenly Blue.
They have a luminous glow to them. I love old fashioned Zinnias too--
Zinnias and Morning Glorys never fail me. This small vine/flower snuck in a hanging pot--
The flowers are small but bright! I have a Tropical Hibiscus I overwintered in the house. Its new to me, I followed the directions on the internet and pruned it back severely over the winter. I thought it might not recover or bloom--but here is the first flower--
Yesterday I saw different butterflies visiting the flowers--
"The Silver-spotted Skipper almost never visits yellow flowers but favors blue, red, pink, purple, and sometimes white and cream-colored ones."
I read this information after taking pictures, so I paged back--nope, no butterflies on yellow flowers!
Not being able to sew has been awful. Yesterday I pulled out some blocks that needed pressing. Instructions were in the bag with the blocks--
I had completely forgotten the pattern but remembered it as I was pressing them!
Summer is beginning to wind down. The weather has been perfect the last few days. Warm days with cool nights. Ahhhh--I love summer!
