Hi everyone and welcome to Ten Gables Cottage! Toaday I thought I would brave the heat and take a little walk around the flower garden! The perwinkle is really doing well.
Zinnias are coming along well, too. I have to concentrate on hot weather flowers in Florida, so I plant more zinnia seed each week; that way I will hopefully have them even during the hottest summer weather. I love to bring them indoors and make colorful bouquets. I love to set up still life groupings with zinnias to paint!
Speaking of color, check out the brilliant lime green of this little fellow! These lizards change color according to their surroundings.
And lastly, here is my disappointing sunflower! I planted a bunch of sunflower seeds and only got this one plant to make it! The others came up, but before our afternoon rains started, they all died except this one. However, is is short, the leaves look like they are
diseased and curling up, and the poor flowers is not very big. I don't know the variety as I planted several and did not keep the packages. I think I needed to plant them earlier in the Spring.
Here's hoping your garden is full of lovely flowers, no lizards, but lots of butterflies!
