This is one of my coneflowers. It is a big one and almost perfect at this moment.
This is one of the black-eyed susans. They are doing well , except for two of my flower beds, they have a fungus. I am going to buy some spray for that today.
These are the mums that have bloomed out this past week. Plenty of little buds on them too.
I love mums of all colors....but my favorite are the reddish colored ones . I have some nice orange colors that I bought from the neighbor boy when he was raising money for his Alpha trip to D.C. Just a few years ago. That young man will be 15 this Oct. My grandson Skylar, is 15 also, that's how I can remember the neighbor boy's age. LOL
Hope all of you have a great day. We are to, possibly ,have showers or thunderstorms. XO
Good morning, Susie! Don't you just love the late summer flowers! I have not been able to find mums that are hardy to my area, but the black eyed susans and coneflowers are doing great. I do wonder why the black eyed susans spread like crazy and the coneflowers are so stingy with their propagation. I need more of them in my garden - and they're so beautiful! We're expecting thunderstorms late afternoon. I need to get the raspberries picked again before then.ReplyDelete
Maybe the cone flowers seeds get eaten by the birds to quickly. I really do not know. But I too think they are a pretty flower. Mmmm, raspberries. Something so sweet to eat. Even a few on cereal or ice cream is a big treat. Hope you get them done before big rain. Blessings for a wonderful day, xoxo,SusieDelete
love all your flowers. My mums doesn't come back, I do love them.ReplyDelete
Sylvia, I think mums are super hardy...so I wonder what could be happening with yours. I hope you don't give up on them. My sister tries to grow them in containers....I keep telling her they have to be in the ground as the winter freezing can kill their roots in pots.. I have done potted ones on the porch for the Fall season just for color...I know they are going to die, so I do not spend big money on a porch plant. Blessings to you honey, xoxo,SusieDelete
That is a great picture of the coneflower, Susie. I like the red mums too. For some reason, red flowers really get me, I love them. You definitely have a talent for growing flowers.ReplyDelete
Have a good weekend.
Sheri, I am laughing and thanking you about the talent for growing flowers. Truly they have to be hardy or they don't have much of a chance. I am not one who's out in the gardens and beds every day.Delete
I try to remember to water things. that's about it for taking good care. But I am glad you like my flowers. This year the red petunias I planted sure have drawn the hummingbirds in to the feeder. Those little birds love the color red. Blessings for a wonderful weekend, xoxo,Susie
It looks beautiful at your house Susie. Isn't it wonderful when the daisies and cone flowers bloom???ReplyDelete
June, I always wanted black eyed susan when I was growing up. We were such a mob, that a flower never had a chance at our house. I remember picking dandelions and violets for our mom. Just to be giving her some flowers. Funny, I think every kids picks those dandelions for their moms. I wish I had all your beautiful pink flowers, I love them. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I love Mums too.ReplyDelete
Be careful when you use the spray for the fungus.
Have a great weekend.
Munir, Hope your weekend is a great one too. I know about over -spray...where sprays can float off in the air, onto other things.So I will be careful.:) xoxo,SusieDelete
Your flowers are so very pretty. I hope you get the rain, but not the storms. We are hoping for rain tomorrow.ReplyDelete
All the best to you this evening.
A town west of here got 5 inches of rain in a short time...had street flooding. We had some rumbling of thunder, but no rain. xoxo,SusieDelete
your flowers are beautiful, I hope the storms pass you by!ReplyDelete
Laurie, We had dark clouds, thunder, and no rain...hmmm? xoxo,SusieDelete
I love your flowers, Susie! The coneflower is a favorite of mine and I just love the red mums, too. I wish we could get some of that rain headed your way. We only had a sprinkle today. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Cheryl, It was forecasted to rain...but we didn't get any. A town west of us got 5 inches. YIKES, too much in a short time. xoxo,SusieDelete
I love coneflowers. I used to have lots of them but then they just stopped coming up. I may try it again but for now I am going to gaze upon yours! enjoy the weekend.ReplyDelete
Joanne, I know it takes the coneflower a couple years or so to seed themselves. But I had one plant and it's about three times it's size now. I should pull some of the seed heads this fall and plant them around, just to see if they will grow. Enjoy the weekend, xoxo,SusieDelete
conflowers! wow my favorite. thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by, Balista,I am hoping my coneflowers get bigger. xoxo,SusieDelete
i sure hope the storms don't hurt your beautiful flowers honey!ReplyDelete
Bee, When I heard about the hail in the storms...I did at least move my porch flowers out of the way. :):) The town west of my daughter's, got 5 inches of rain in a very short time...flooded streets and parking lots. xoxo,SusieDelete
