There are so many signs that summer is coming to a close. One of the sure ways to tell is by looking at what is and is not blooming in the garden. Many things are done flowering but a few things are in their prime this time of year.
One of my favourite (notice the 'u' ...lol) is the Hibiscus. This one is called Luna Pink Swirl and it just starting blooming last week. The flowers are large, about 6-8 inches across. The flowers only last a few days each but there are many, many buds on one plant and each day new ones open up. I love it!
Another favourite of mine is 'Black Eyed Susans'. The plants are so easy to grown and are just a covered this time of year. These flowers last for weeks!
So I hope everyone has a great long weekend where ever you are! :)
