Lovin' the Heat

Not me! Some of my flowers though,
~ Moss rose ~
Another color:
I'll have lots of seeds from the plants.
These have been the best looking petunias this summer. They haven't stopped blooming even though we've have over 44 days above 90-100 degrees. Not a record, but it sure seems like one.
This is a dark variety of the sweet potato vine family. It has lavender bell shaped flowers!
And after taking the picture, I realized the individual leaves are my favorite shape. I must always look at the whole mass of dark leaves instead of each small heart.
Reminds me of a song we sing in church--"Open my Eyes". It also makes me think of our relationship with our God. ♥ to ♥

Hi Marilyn...

My friend, you have quite the "green thumb"! Oooh...your moss rose looks soo pretty! I haven't had moss rose for a number of years but I love it! Guess I should remedy that little problem! You know, my petunias have done so well this summer too. Usually they are all straggly by this time of the summer. We sure have had the heat, haven't we? Sounds like you are as ready for Fall as I am!

Well dear friend, I just wanted to drop by to say hello. I hope that you are getting readjusted to your schedule. Are you counting down the days until next summer already? Hehe! Sending you best wishes for a great school year, dear friend! Take care...

Love ya,

My moss rose has done well, also. The petunias not so well - the grasshoppers and snails like them too much, I guess. Mike is rarely home in the summer, but this year he has been and has suffered from the heat with no air conditioning. He's glad to be back at school for that reason. Enjoy the weekend. Sally

Mine have had it from the heat. Terribly hot here in Kansas.

Soooo ready for 73 degree temps.
God bless,
