Not sure what is going on with this Dinner Plate Dahlia...it looks like one side wants to bloom and the other side wants to die...split personalities maybe???

LOL, I've had a few of those last ones myself!!

Seriously everything looks beautiful. Those crepe myrtles can get unruly, so most folks trim them down drastically every year. Not sure when the best time to do that is - would have to look it up. Mine is kind of in the midst of the yard by the shed with plenty of room to spred out so I just let it go wild.

LOL! We all have a pretty favorite like your last one. Great container though, poor posy.
You always have so many pretty things blooming in your beds.

Nice agglomeration of flower, DP.

I see that your Butterfly Ginger is soon to bloom. Mine, too (actually, mine is Hedychium gardnerianum).

I saw Tide (and Kiki) below. Yes.

I know it "looks" like a lot of flowers, but compared to the plants I have...there isn't really alot blooming. I know ya'll would love the last picture!! LOL!!!

Prospero Kiki is an ANGEL around me, but when I am not around she turns into the devil

I htink everyone has one of those pictured in the last photo! ;-) I think that Plumbago wanted to be in your yard.

I love the Pentas (I think that's what they are). I've started seeing them on blogs lately and just love them. My zinnias just started to bloom today and I'm going to try your method of deadheading them into the garden and see what comes back.
The last one is great :)

Darla said...

I seem to have several just like your personal favorite. You could always commit Crepe Murder and trim the tree up. I even twist the trunks and branches around each other for added interest. Your blooms are beautiful...

RainGardener said...

Everything looks lovely in spite of the hot weather you've had. You have a lot of beautiful flowers I don't recognize. Love that last one - I have some of those too! LOL Did you re name your dinnerplate Sybil?

ChrisC and JonJ said...

I think we all a few plants like the last one!
All your blooms are gorgeous.
And you have yard-art! Woo-hoo!!!!

Ginger said...

Your yard looks amazing! I love the new background and diamonds here.
You crack me up with that last picture!!!!!!! It makes me feel so much better to know I'm not the only one with some flat out DEAD plants!!
Have a great weekend :)

LOL LOL You really surprised me at the end. Too funny! I love the daylily! -Jackie

Tatyana said...

Hello Princess! It's nice to see these lovely blooms inspite the hot weather. The last picture has something in it, too... It could be a piece for an abstract art! Thanks for leaving a comment on my big fish. I think I've been smiling all the time since I caught it.They say that a happiness is just a moment. Well, I had my moment. See you around and you stay cool!

Kim and Victoria said...

Ha ha! The last one is my favorite!

Phoenix C. said...

What a wonderful collection of different flowers! I love the vibrant colours. Also like the look of the decoration in among the flowers, with the beads.
