Monday Musings: Garden flowers
Tonight's group of photos are flowers from my garden. With summer two months in, plants are beginning to look rather sad - desperate for a good shower of rain - we may get something on Thursday or Friday as a result of Cyclone Olga up north - otherwise I will keep on watering and they will hold on until the heat reduces and Autumn rains arrive. Rain would be very welcome to us humans to - we haven't see much this summer and everything is looking very dry and dusty.
The top photo is of the hydrangea which has just finished flowering - they hate the heat and need to be watered every night - but considering all that this particular shrub flowered very well. The next 2 photos are of a Cosmos flower - in full bloom and at the end of its life. Even in death it still has some beauty.
PS The rose in the entry below is also from my garden - taken around 4 years ago. The rose shrub has since died which is very sad as it produced beautiful flowers.
