We've had somewhat of a revival in our Michigan flower gardens, in the past few weeks. The temperatures have been less than scorching and there has been much needed rain every now and then. These Black Eyed Susans near my front porch, are back to looking pretty and still blooming strong.
These Vincas which surround a tree in my front yard are gorgeous again with their vibrant pinks, purples and reds.
In my Perennial garden this yellow Sweet Coneflower provides a splash of color, as it waves tall in the breeze.
My newest Perennial - 'First Love' - bloomed recently with these bright, pink flowers. I thought the deer had chewed off the buds, but thankfully, I was wrong. These are just too pretty to have missed.
This one perfect Daisy is still blooming, bravely in my side yard. Just a reminder to us of the first flowers in June.
Even in the spot where some less than hardy Impatiens are now gone, there is still something new to look at. I recently added some smooth, white rocks from a Lake Michigan beach.
I plan on enjoying the peace and relaxation that I feel when I walk in my flower garden on sunny, summer days, as long as I can. These late blooms remind me how much I will miss them before too long.
Hope you can go outside and enjoy the last of the summer days.
