Summer Flowers

Thank you to all of you that participated and came to my "I Love Summer" Party!!

Now one of the things that I Love about Summer is flowers so I thought I would participate in my first Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan from A Southern Daydreamer.

I haven't had a chance to plant many flowers yet due to all the rain we've had, but do have a few perenials to show you from our yard.

Clemantis that grows on our stone mailbox along with star jasmine...oh it smells heavenly!

Our late blooming Azaleas (june and they are still blooming)

another azaela

and another...

my Lacecap Hydrangea bush

when I planted this several yrs ago I thought I was getting the big hydrangea flowers, but as you can see I bought the wrong variety...this is called Lacecap.

My Easter Lillies

Here are the only flowers I planted so far this summer...wave petunias

pansies that I planted last fall...I think they are on their last leg. The summer heat is getting to them!

Hope you enjoyed my little floral tour.

Now go check out the other participants of Outdoor Wednesday.

Take Care

Welcome to OW! You have beautiful flowers. I need to get some of yours that I don't yet have. We are famous in this area for azaleas, but they've already come and gone this year.
