Blooms in the Summer Heat

My daughter's was born at the end of July.
 It seems that we can always depend on the Crepe Myrtle in our yard to bloom in celebration on her birthday.

They add some color to a totally green-filled yard.

My best no-care perennial is my Black Eyed Susan.  I can count on bursts of them in my garden.
 I bring them inside too and enjoy them in a vase on the table.

I love how they always circle around my trellis.

It's even better when they decide to mix in with my lovely but short-lived Phlox.

What thrives in your garden in the summer heat?



  1. Oh I love the crepe myrtle, it is stunning and all of your flowers are so pretty. Can't wait for cooler temps so we can have some flowers again.

  2. we have the old fashioned dark pink crepes around the pool and they just came into full bloom....the branches are so loaded down with blooms they are hanging on the ground.....just beautiful this year. love the perennial daisies. I just know your yard is so so pretty.
