Hi All, Today was a nice sunny, lazy sort of day. My friend, Beth, and I went swimming for an hour early this morning at KOA and then I took a little walk around the garden to see what is blooming. The crepe myrtles are gorgeous and I have 2 shades of pink and a lavender one. The lavender is a little later to get in full bloom, I think, than the pink.
I can't remember the name of the above perennial, but the blooms are very pretty.
Zinnias are really my favorite summer flowers as they don't mind the heat and are easy to grow.
The flower garden usually has several kinds of butterflies. They seem to love the bright colors of the zinnias.
And I will end this post with a painting I did of zinnias. Hope you are enjoying the hot days of summer!
