Beautiful blooms today Darla. I would be thankful for some rain too. :) Looks like we are going to have a chance all week with some thunderstorms to boot.

Roses and Lilacs said...

Everything looks wonderful. Love those powderpuff hollyhock!!

Let's all pray that there are no hurricanes this season. The potential for disaster is compounded by the mess BP has caused in the gulf.

Good morning Darla. What beautiful hollyhocks and dahlias. The photos you posted for Fert Fri show some gorgeous blooms too. Your beds look so good. and I always like to see your wheelbarrows. I hope we don't have to deal with those horrible storms too. Looks like we may have oil on our beaches by Thur. According to the NOAA Orange Beach and Gulf Shores are expecting to have oil - the thick stuff - on our beaches. I am saddened by this.

Suzanne said...

Shelley said...

I have a cousin that lives on the coast in a big white house very close to the water. She said that is all she needs now is a hurricane to blow oil all over her house.
The Apple G seeds were old and I didn't do any thing just put them in the pot, it took two or more weeks for them to come up.

Hi Darla, I love your Rose of Sharon.

Ami said...

I too hope this hurrican season is not that active like what they are predicting since I am afraid that my very young garden might not be able to handle it :( Love all your blooms, especially the Hollyhock! That white color with hint of yellow looks so srumptious!

Deb said...

beautiful flowers....

sweet bay said...

I really really really hope the predictions for the hurricane season are wrong. Especially considering the huge oil mess in the Gulf.

Jean said...

Lovin' your bloomers! The bed with the white impatients is very striking. Both colors of your trumpet flower are beautiful! Thanks for being such a faithful participant. Jean

Katie said...

Hi Darla. Your Dalhias are all so pretty and another beautiful Hollyhock.Love the double blooms. I hope the hurricane season isn't as bad as they are forecasting too. I would hate to think what would happen along the Louisiana coast and area with all of that oil and then hit with hurricanes spreading it around. It could even push the oil into Florida.

Twisted Fencepost said...

That is a great shot of the Rose of Sharon with the water droplets!

Grace Peterson said...

Hi Darla~~ I just remember I taped the show today and forgot to watch it. I are smart.

Love all your flowers but that second rosy colored dahlia, ooh, la, la!!
