Beautiful! I planted balloon flowers for the first time this year and I LOVE them! What a delight they've been in the garden! And how delightful to see you still have clematis growing. Lovely.

love the clematis! I have 2 varieties,one is a fall bloomer, but I've never seen one like yours. I'm guessing it wouldn't do well in Michigan :(

All of your photos are great. It wasn't easy to get that wren in the picture but you did. Good job. Your flowers look so healthy and all of your arrangements are really great. I enjoy your site very much.

I think it's been a good year for dahlias, with all the rain you've had over there. Larry tells me the humming birds are back. Have you got them in your garden?
Blessings, Star
