My joy is that I have been able to water my garden areas. I have many plants that have not survived the extended heat, but my garden is much better off than many I see. The plants that have lived through this are Texas tough. Superman strong. True survivors. Every day I am thankful that we drilled a well in the nick of time to save my garden. That many of my plants can take the heat and are drought tolerant. While so many have lost their gardens completely, I am thankful for each and every bloom in mine.
The last couple of Bloom Days, I have focused on the roses that were blooming. Today I'll focus on other plants in my garden.
Can I just say here how much I love catmint? And, no - the cats don't bother it!
My sedum has had a tinge of pink all summer. Should be gorgeous this fall!
I think asters are adorable. I loved their spring blooms, and couldn't wait for them to start blooming again.
My hydrangeas are blooming purple instead of their regular blue. Due to the heat, I suppose.
Caladiums are still looking good. Lantana, Pavonia, Althea, Salvia, Firebush, Chinese Indigo and Liriope are all blooming without complaint.
And just a few roses. (You didn't really think I'd leave them out, did you?)
Have a great Garden Bloggers Bloom Day!
