The garden is mostly green this time of year, but I’ve pulled together six shots of color to share today.
From top left, going clockwise:
- Encore azalea Autumn Amythest 2. White zinnias at night (with a little orange peeping around the edge) 3. Purple torenia over Lemon Crème coneflowers 4. The hot colors of gaillardia and melampodium 5. Purple Angelonia 6. Pink torenia and zinnias
As our daily showers continue, I must admit some “survivor guilt” for the abundance of rain we’re having along the Gulf Coast. Farmers and ranchers in Texas are enduring an extended drought, as is the western US and also other parts of the world, including the UK. It is a serious threat to food supplies.
Mat 5:45b For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
There’s neither blame nor explanation. However we can pray for a break in this dry spell, and that beautiful rain will drench the thirsty ground soon.
Blessings to you, Dottie
