Best of Both Worlds

Today's Flowers and Summer Sundays!
Weekends are going to be shorter now that I'm going back to school. At least in my mind! This unofficial "last" summer weekend meant fun with my daughter, moving some heavy furniture for more painting, cleaning some carpet, watering, visiting, and shopping. And a surprise--someone came and mowed the lawn for me. I'll be finding out tomorrow who my "hero" is!
Each weekend when I go to my mom's and take groceries I enjoy stopping in at my brother's to see his latest garden success. Working from the ground up his yard and garden gets better each summer. This week his dinner plate hibiscus is blooming. He measured one at 10 1/2 inches!
His pretty moss rose or portulaca.
My newest phlox, a volunteer.
The petunias are still needing a trim so they'll bloom during September and October. I like this pink with the sweet potato vine.
If you'd like to enter my give away, look on the side and click to that post.

Again, thanks to The Tablescaper and the team for Today's Flowers. I really appreciate your dedication so that we get to share with our friends.

The hibiscus is gorgeous along with the other flowers! We finally had rain today! I hope my plants perk up now so they will survive until fall.
Hugs,
