I have four days off in a row. Chance and I have already wasted one day..I slept late and then we went visiting and took a few photos. Got to get in some camera time!
One of Far Guy’s cousins has some beautiful flowers. She was watering when we got there..but we still managed a few photos of some of the plants that we used to grow.
This is Tithonia Fiesta Del Sol. Often times it is called Mexican sunflower. The Monarch butterflies love this plant.
I smiled when I found this Tobacco behind the Cleome at the far edge of one garden. We used to grow Tobacco every year..it was one of those plants you could almost watch grow when the weather turns hot and humid.
Here is a pretty plant that grows in the form of a small tree.
I had no idea what it was..it is a tropical plant called Duranta erecta or Golden Dewdrops or Skyflower. Beautiful..but all parts are toxic to children and pets. Not something I would want in my yard.
I can feel in the air that the flowers will be gone soon..it was 39 degrees F last night ( 3 degrees C). That is a tad chilly for this time of year:(
