Garden, August 19

My hibiscus bush is done blooming unless there are some surprise buds facing the garage. Last year fall was long and warm enough to produce a second round of hibiscus blooms. Perhaps the encore blooming will happen again this year, but our cool nights hint that this is not likely to happen again this year.

My sunflowers continue to bloom. Pictured above is my first open bud on our Teddy Bear sunflower. I’m excited to see this one unfurl. It looks more like a giant mum than a sunflower when it is in full bloom.

My calibrachoa baskets are prospering. This afternoon I noticed a hummingbird flitting about these baskets, but it flew away as soon as I opened my screen door with camera in hand.
