Those hibiscuses are breathtaking. Thanks for such beauty at a barren time of year here.

Beautiful! I envy you SouthernCA gardeners for being able to grow the "Autumn Joy" sedum; it did nothing but rot in my garden. I think we're too often foggy and cold for it.

Love it all, but especially the colors of your daylilies. I don't have many, and yours are gorgeous.

Thanks ladies,the gardens aren't as nice this year as in the past,as it's been soooooooooooooooo hot and humid here,except for these past 2 days and we feel like we're in HE**.it's 97 here along the coast,and while the humidity has gone for now,it was followed by the santa ana winds.
You walk outside and it's like walking into a furnace,MISERABLE,I tell ya.

jk,i have lots of lilies,all different colors,later i'l look thru my PB album and post some more pics of them.

Kathi, TFS, just beautiful. I'd love to be able to stroll around your garden in person I'd be doing a lot of owing and awing . Can you tell me the variety names of your sedums especially that really bright one, I have a few but none of them are as nice as yours. Are your Brugmansias fragrant, I have some that are and some that don't.

Do you know the names of the different sedum? One I recognize as Autumn Joy. I didn't realize that California had also been affected by the terrible heat. I thought most of the summer the West Coast was normal.

Mantis,the sedums are autumn joy,and the bright pink one is Neon,the other i don't remember.

S.Calif this year has had a very hot summer this year,days of high temp and high humidity.Miserable i tell ya.

I was just going to post some more pictures of some more of my sedums and crassulas etc,but that stupid photobucket won't co-operate with me!! GGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
