As most of you know by now, I live in the desert of AZ. The summers are too hot for anything much to bloom and so while most of you are enjoying the garden, mine is wilted and suffering from the intense heat.....BUT, having said that, we are now enjoying a climate that is in the 80's during the day and cold at night. That is great news for a second chance at seeing gorgeous blooms once again before the cold of winter. I decided to take a stroll thru my garden this morning and see what the heavens had surprised me with. I was delighted and wanted to share my bounty with you today. I hope you enjoy all the blooms and they brighten your day.
I don't have many blooms this late in the year, (not like spring) but what little I do have is so beautiful and smells so nice.
This is a rose from a mini rose tree.
This lavender rose smells like heaven, a pure delight for the senses.
This rose changes colors as it opens. Would you believe it starts out as a pink rose?
My hibiscus bloom almost 10 months out of the year. Sometimes the cold nights of winter freeze them. We have been known to get down to 17 degrees at night, but when the sun comes up, we usually get into the high 60' and 70's.
I was able to catch a picture of double blooms on this rose bush. I can see it from my kitchen window. It makes it very hard to think of fall when you see roses like this one.
Another sweet mini, altho not many roses now.
My honey perfume rose tree, this too smells delightful, very sweet.
Another hisbiscus with white veins, beautiful.
This is a little of what I created this week. I have some vintage jello molds and decided to make a pincushion from one that looks like a pie on top. I thinks it's so cute.
Also made some angel ornaments. It is that time of year isn't it. I hope you enjoyed my offering this week, and I hope you all have a great week.
The winner of my pumpkin is........Leann from the Old Parsonage, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address so I can get this to you as soon as possible. Congrats.
