Hydrangea got two blooms only this year. First time a bloom in three years. Don't know really what is wrong. When I purchased it, the color said red, but I guess really the soil does dictate the color.
Further down the fence with the zinnias
A cherry tomato in a pot at the fence and so far so good.
Dill mixed in with some planting in pots. I will be using that this morning when I pickle some cukes.
I snipped off quite a bit of coleus and now they have all rooted like these in this hanging pot.
Rooted giant begonia and coleus in this hanging planter. I took a chance they would and now they are getting too large for it.
I purchased this Croton plant from Home Depot.
Needs lots of light
humming bird vine at the lamp post with zinnias and coleus
Hope to see some hummingbirds soon
Here in a planting around the dogwood are some more coleus I rooted. There were larkspur but have all gone to seed now. Weather has done a number on the plantings in this bed. Some how the weeds such as the grass you see here always seem to flourish no matter what the weather or temps.
We took in the parade in town along with the girls on Independence Day. Wow, was it hot. I could not find a shady spot but standing up instead of sitting at least I could feel the breeze a little by a tree that cast some shade. We had sno cones and popsicles for a cool treat.

As always a pie contest for the best Apple Pie.
Fire works decorated this one.
I am standing back under some dappled shade. Hot and very muggy and very uncomfortable to be out in.
Sno cones helped
