Today it finally cooled off! It wasn't temperature hot but very, very, very humid outside which just depletes me!
After sitting awhile in my secret garden sitting area I decided to walk around and take photos of our late August garden flowers
I came inside to grab my camera and headed out the front door.
Zinnias in a flower pot on our front porch. She's already had her luscious blooms and is heading into her seeding phase. I'll have plenty of seeds to gather in Fall.
The next few photos are in my front yard...
Double Inpatients in a container
Pink and White Pentas in front of a Japanese Maple
Endless Summer Hydrangea. I don't know what' up this summer...but these are the first blooms I've had on the Hydrangea and none on 3 in the backyard.
I am not a big fan of Endless Summer and think I'll pull them out next summer.
We're in the sun garden room now....a gorgeous Dahlia bloom behind a birdbath
The yellow is a Helianthus (perennial sunflower) and the deeper yellow is a Black Eyed Susan and then pink Phlox
The Porcelain Berry Vine (grape family) is in berry phase. The berry colors are spectacular and the birds LOVE them.
Heirloom Balsam (Inpatient)
A Japanese Maple starting to turn to it's fall color
We are in the secret garden area....Chelome, a great fall shade perennial

Pink Zinnia and beautiful seed heads set on the left
I hope you enjoyed this late August Garden Flower's.
It's hard to think in a few months this will all be done!
