|"Arabian Nights" Dahlia - with a "Lemon Yellow" Daylily back drop...|
|"Sun Garden" in Sunset|
(Pink Guara, "Wine & Roses" Weigela, Sedum, Moonbeam Coreopsis and Paprika Yarrow)
|Sedum Angelina, Pink Double-Knockout Rose, Sweet Autumn Clematis|
Moonbeam Coreopsis, Fireball Hibiscus, Pink Guara and Rudibeckia
The Sweet Autumn Clematis continues its climb up the trellis - about 3 & 1/2 feet up. The Hibiscus is a riot of blooms. Those dinner plate-sized flowers are going to explode - like the plant itself, that has quadrupled in size this year (growing from a 1 stemmed plant to 4). I am going to have to add Pink Guara down in my 'Cottage Garden'. It has such awesome movement to it in the breeze - it just says 'cottage'. It is so much more hardy then the "Sweet Dreams" Coreopsis rosea - which currently looks so anemic I feel bad for it.

Stay cool! (I'll never complain about my shade trees ever again.)
