My flowers are so very excited to get a good drink of rain..It has been so long since we have had rain. There is nothing like rain water, it does so much more than the hose can ever do. I'm not sure what these are called but my husband loved them and I call them hillbilly flowers LOL No a fence to anyone. they take over everything when they bloom like look at me and me only.. We found these behind our fence one year and brought them around to plant. I think they are some kind of phlox.
Is this not beautiful. I so love this color and the flower. We picked this up at Lowe's on clearance in a bag not knowing the color but we like Dahlia's so we got it planted and waited then all of a sudden out popped this beauty. I see more buds.

This is a rose on a stick we got it from marc's discount store for 15.00 we grabbed the last to. We priced them for over 35.00 or more. I really like this.

I do forget this flowers name. We started it from seed this year. I believe it is in the morning glory family. But it is so dainty and the color just glows. It is closed in the morning and comes out in the day. Well I hope you enjoyed some of my flowers from my garden, and I know they are enjoying all this rain..Rain drops keep falling on their head LaLalalal

I'm so glad you've been enjoying my blog! Where in Ohio are you? The flower that you think is a phlox looks like cleome to me, also known as a spider flower. It's an annual, but reseeds itself like crazy. I had a dahlia in a pot, but it didn't like it there and promptly died. I've never grown them before, so now I'm a bit nervous to try again!
