More & More Color

We had planned to mow around the big garden yesterday morning. However, the morning rain showers that we experienced literally put a damper on our plans. The rain did let up in the afternoon and we decided to proceed with our plans. We got everything mowed in about 1 1/2 hours. The grass was a bit wet but not bad too bad. It was however quite humid. After I finished mowing I took a stroll around the garden. My 2 plants of "Franz Kafka" are in a full blooming flush right now.

This must be my 7th or 8th "Haley's Dream" bloom. It's another early bloomer.

Another early bloomer for me; Tahoma Alicia" MB DP

"Pooh" CO BI RD/YL/yl

I was also excited to notice on my walk that one of my "Mini Jack" pumpkins had its first male blossom open up today. The vines are just starting to crawl. I think if we have another warm, dry September like we had last year,  I just might get some baby pumpkins to set and mature.

Beautiful flowers! I add more flowers to my garden each year. Maybe next year I'll try some dahlias. :-)
