Here's what's left after a very hot & dry summer..

It's time for Cottage Flora Thursday over at
Miss Tracie's Fishtail Cottage
and Flaunt your Flowers Friday over at Miss Glenda's Tootsie Time
so I'm sharing a few things that have made it through this summer
but most of my flowers have given up. 
We were to long without rain and all those long hot days took their toll on me and my flowers.


Jasminum sambac
~ It is occasionally referred to as midnight jasmine due to its flowers opening up during the night. This is one of my favorites. I have it planted right outside the backdoor/porch growing up a trellis. In the evening and first thing in the morning the fragrance is wonderful.


I love my Morning Glories


and this white cockscomb is climbing into my top 10 favorites.
 It is starting to open up I can't wait to see how big it gets..


Basil's are still going strong the hydrangea's are pooped out. One late blooming daylily is finishing up.


My Zinnia's are drying in the beds


The Brown eyed Susie's ( sorry that's what I call them ) are loving the heat.


and some more pretty morning glories these are Tie Dye's every blossom is different. 
I'm not sure how it happened but it is the end of July already. 
Now if I can just make it through August without melting.


I have just found a cute Blog that host a garden party every Tuesday come check it out

Sidewalk Shoes She pretty much does it all

Hope everyone enjoys these last few day's of July STAY COOL..
hugs from Savannah, Cherry

  1. It looks to me like you have a lot of beautiful bloomers yet:)! The Cockscomb is great (never seen that type before). I'm hoping August brings us some normal temps (of course that would be 90's - never mind) I guess I'll cool off in the Fall.

  2. Cherry,

    Maybe this heat will move on out and we'll get some rain. At this rate, we're going to be living in a desert!

    I love that cockscomb! I'll have to look for it NEXT year! Too late to add any annuals here now. I noticed one of my pink flamingo celosia from last year had self-sowed only one little seedling this year. Usually get more, but seeds don't like to be baked without any moisture.

    Take care and stay cool in this heat.

  3. Well Cherry, looks like you had some really lovely bloomers this summer! I'm sure the jasmines left your garden smelling fantastic. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

  5. That Jasmine is SO pretty!

    My son just spotted our first morning glory flower this morning. :o)

    I've never grown the cockscomb. I'll have to keep my eye out for it next spring.

    The cherry blossoms in your header photo are so dang pretty.

    Thanks for coming by my blog - I'm gonna go poke around yours. :o)

  8. Love your white cockscomb! You have some pretty blooms, although I know how the garden suffers when it's hot. On one hand, I'm ready for September and cooler weather, but then I'm not ready for winter to come, either! I wish it could just stay spring.

  11. Beautiful flowers. I'm hoping to do more flowers next year, we've pretty much just done veggies this year.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. My daughter doesn't like okra either. But, for the rest of us it's a treat.

  14. Hi Cherry, I think you have lots of pretties yet! I especially like the jasmine, morning glories, and rudbeckia. Hoping for cooler days and some rain for you and for us too.

  17. What pretty jasmine. Your black? brown eye susans look great. Your tie died morning glory is a new one on me. The cool front and rain just missed us. Hope you got it.
