August Blooms



What happens around these parts in August is that usually most of your flowers dry up. The zinnias have only been blooming about a month. I've so enjoyed cut bouquets to bring inside.



I find this flower so incredibly intricate! The passion vine has just taken off since last summer and is sprouting up all over the yard.


Morning glories are a pretty hardy bunch too. Since they tend to close up before the afternoon heat hits. Next year I've got to remember to buy blue ones. These just came back from last year. And are a rich velvety purple.


The zinnias already know it's nearly time to fold up camp. Though they haven't been blooming long, their tall stalks are turning brown. August is hard on the flowers.


And I can't leave out the cannas that I moved from the side of the house last year and now are everywhere. They keep on keepin' on too. Multiplying at a rapid rate.


I so enjoy them all while they're here. Showing off their blooms, heads faced toward the sun. But for everything there is a season. 

And when August rolls around, kids are thinking about going back to school. Mothers are gearing up for car pools. August means change.


Thank goodness I have them captured in pictures to enjoy all year long. 

I'm linking up with The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.

  1. Brenda your flowers are so pretty and your photos stunning! It is so hot here that the flowers aren't very happy at all. I must water a lot to keep what I have growing.

  4. Brenda, this post reminds me of my childhood! We called the pod on the Passion vine,"May Pops" and had so much fun popping them. Morning Glories grew wild everywhere and my mother always grew Canna Lilies. Later, the first flowers that I planted, when my husband and I bought our first house were green Zinnias called, "Envy". Thanks for the walk down memory lane! Your flowers are beautiful.

  6. Ah, you have flowers that like the sun there! We have so much shade but do have zinnias in one sunny corner of the front garden. I dearly love them. We ought to have cannas somehow as they just seem to go with a farmhouse. Must try them next year if we can find another sunny spot.

  11. M zinnias are just starting to bloom here. It has been such a cool summer that things seem a little behind here.

  12. Yeah, it's pretty hot around here in August too so our flowers aren't as nice either. Yours look pretty right now though! What is thriving right now is all the green stuff around here. The grass and bushes are growing like crazy due to all the rain we've had this summer. So, I'm not going to complain.

  13. I was just lamenting the fact that things are wilting form lack of water, after having so much rain last month. The zinnias are still pretty here. Just re-added you to my favorites list. xo Laura

  14. Your flowers are beautiful.
    I didn't get hardly any of these planted this year... no zinnias, no morning glories. I have tried cannas in the past...but I don't think I've planted them in the right places. Not enough water.
    I do have my 4 o'clocks and they are still blooming like crazy!
    Did your ever grow from the seed I sent you?
    My daughter has yellow ones, I never knew there were yellow ones...I'm going to try and harvest some of those and plant them for next year.
    Enjoy your flowers my friend.

  15. Your flowers are really beautiful. It's so sad that they get burnt up by the sun. This summer has been a lot cooler and wetter than normal and I'm not sure my plants know what to do about it.
