Happy Blooms

While we were gone on vacation, our area received a nice soaking rain.  It revived many plants in the garden.

The salvia along the driveway.

The sweet potato vine by the front walk.

The cosmos in the back garden.

The maximilian's sunflowers in the side garden.
(Why are they floppy this year?)

The lilac in the back garden.
(The lilac?  What?)


  1. Why is that lilac blooming?

  2. We haven't recovered from our drought at all and lacking rain again so my Lilac hasn't rebloomed. Yours looks so pretty.

  3. Hi dear,

    I AGREE with you. I am so glad it is autumn. This summer was a doozer.

    From my garden to yours,


  4. Your salvia looks way better than mine!Mine is straggly.

  5. The rain and the cool temperatures really have made a tremendous difference this past week. It is like the gardens are awaking all over again.

  6. I love when it rains while on's one less thing I need to worry about when I come home:)

  7. My maximillins aren't blooming quite yet, this week maybe, but they are upright and strong stemmed. .no clue on yours!! It's nice to have some cooler temperatures!!

  8. There's nothing like a good rain to make the garden happy again. Your salvia look so good! My 'Bloomerang' lilac is blooming again, but then it's supposed to. Your lilac must think it's spring again:)

  9. Very nice. I have some odd things reblooming now, too, like a pink penstemon.

  10. Wow on the salvia. My Maximillions are always floppy. Even if I cut them back. I think mine flop because of too much shade.

  11. The salvia along your drive always looks so pretty. Wow your sweet potato vine is really thriving.

  12. The rain has made everything look so good in your garden. What about the lilac??
    Our gardenia is blooming again for about the third time. I love its fragrance.
    Hope you have a restful evening.
