Late To The Garden Party

I am late in posting my pics for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - computer issues.  But here is what's happening in my garden lately.

A few small geraniums.  Pretty color.

Tomato blossoms, still!

Limes ready to pick.

Lantana.  I love this color.  This one blooms mostly in fall.  It is pretty insignificant in my garden the rest of the year.


A lone Zinnia

Reliable, pretty salvia greggii

Gomphrena 'Strawberry Fields'

Salvia Farinacea

Tall ruellia

Iris 'Batik'

Black and Blue salvia

What have I been doing this summer?

Renovating my kitchen(with help)

Spreading granite on pathways

Spreading mulch

Pruning, weeding, bagging garden debris.

And of course, playing with Zoey.
