I watched 27 dresses last night, by myself, all alone. Nobody else wanted to see it so I picked a night when everyone was going to be gone. I was disappointed. It was kinda cute but oh so PREdictable. I would rather watch 4 episodes of Reba and laugh my hiney off. Anyways, so much for wasting my time and 3.99. The other night we watched The Great Debate and it was so good. I was impressed and moved. Society has come a long way but it still has a long way to go. Bucket List was funny, but I really like Jack Nicholson. Summer and movies go hand in hand in the summertime Texas heat.

My Crepe Myrtles are beautiful from the back patio view.
Take a look at this almost flourescent Zinnia.

Today we are in for another 100 degree day. I put out 4 more bags of mulch and I have the soaker hose running. We did receive some much needed rain last Thursday but not near enough. The grass does look alot better, but where I was weeding this morning it was so dry like the desert. I am looking for that rain filled cloud.

Here is some purple phlox that my MIL shared with me.
Oleander is happy too! I just love the color of this one.
Here by my blue bench is the wonderful elderberry my MIL passed along.
My yellow butterfly bush is shooting up like it is on steroids.
Wild sunflower nature planted and I let live. This plant is over 6 feet tall.
Unbelieveable that it decided to have its first blossoms this morning on bloom day.
Brazilian verbena and purple coneflower with the beautiful mexican feather grass.
Pink and purple rule my garden right now. Here is my hardy lantana and yarrow.
Vitex. The camera refused to catch the beauty of this bush. It is vivid purple all over. My MIL dug this up a few years back, so it was about 1 foot tall. It grows quite fast in this area and takes no care at all.
I do have a few roses showing now. This is the zephrine rose.
Zinnia from the seeds I planted in May.
Last but not least is the indigo spires.
Thanks for stopping by on bloom day. Thanks to Carol for having this day. I have learned so much from gardeners around the world. Be sure to stop by and look at her beautiful gardens.
