Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:  Yeah, its Thursday again!  I love doing the garden tour...
Most of the perennials are out of bloom right now.  The Fall asters are just beginning to bud, so we will see them soon.  Only the black-eyed susans are in full bloom at the moment.  They ARE lovely, though!
So we will be seeing the annuals again this week.  The wave petunias are spreading nicely.
We do have a NEW flower in bloom.  These forget-me-nots  have finally gotten big enough to show off some flowers!
The red wave petunias are doing better.  Notice that there are LOTS of buds.
The white wave petunia has lots more flowers though.
The yeller marigolds have both lots of flowers AND lots of buds too.
The salvia is branching out with more flowers...
Now lets go up on the deck for some snacks.  The good news is that we have leftover HAM and Cream De Nip from the party!

We love the black-eyed susans and we are very jealous of your forget me nots. We planted some forget me not seeds but they didn't come up.

Your garden looks great! Especially with all the heat we've been having. The forget-me-nots are soooo purrty! A good friend has a tattoo of forget-me-nots around her wrist like a bracelet in memory of her daughter who passed away.

Oh, and the gargoyle comment, hahameow...Teri thinks the very same thing...that the black ones especially look a tiny bit scarey! No offense taken, in fact, Teri said if she didn't want odd comments she would have gotten normal looking kitties, hahameow!

The garden still looks good! Can't go wrong with petunias! That's what our gramma always used to plant in her planters and pots.

My favorite are the petunias, they are so beautiful!
