I Still Have Flowers in the Garden!

I keep forgetting to link up with Tootsie so this time, I made sure I remembered and posted early. I just want to show you what flowers are still growing in our yard before we lose them.

Please visit other beautiful gardens for Tootsie's Fertilizer Friday at http://www.tootsietime.com/

I am also linking with Claudia's Finding Beauty at http://www.dipityroad.com/

Our parrot plants are still blooming. Hummingbirds like them too so they have been humming around.

These lantanas are in the corner of the yard by the driveway. I love the mixture of the yellow, orange and pink colors.

They are butterflies' favorites too.

I have this flowering pot on top of the big generator by the pool equipment.

You have seen this bouganville before. It is by the fence on the driveway. It is still blooming.

More pink blooms including the crape myrtle trees.

I like the orange, pink with yellow hibiscus flowers.
Cannas Cannas in the secret garden. We have the darker purplish leaves with red flowers and lighter green leaves with orange flowers.

I cannot remember the name of these flowers that are on the pedestal on the pool deck. But they are always blooming from the time I planted them before summer. I think they are annuals. Next year, I plan to plant a lot of them to have pink flowers all the time in the garden.

See what I mean? I planted some behind the deck by the vegetable garden too and they are always in bloom.

I have these yellow flowers on each side of the gazebo.

Orchids inside the gazebo.

in trellis containers.

Plants and flowers in the terraces.

Thanks for the visit and many thanks to our hostesses!

All of your flowers are just beautiful, Christine! I don't know the name of the pink flowers that keep blooming but let me know if someone tells you. These would be great in my garden!

Yes - You do have a lot of flowers hanging on, and they are pretty. Thanks for sharing them with us. Not around here - I have some wax begonias and ferns hanging in there, and one pot of impatiens that may of may not make it. It has been a rough Summer.
Enjoy your holiday weekend.

Hi Christine! Your flowers looks so pretty still. The weather is turning cooler here and things will soon begin to die back. I hope all is well and that you have a wonderful weekend!

What lovely flowers. Cannas have always been favorites of ours. :) My senior mom loves butterflies and flowers and wants to create a butterfly garden. I'll have to tell her about the Lantanas and butterflies. Thank you :)
