These are outside the fence, not watered and competing with Johnson grass, poke and ragweed.

The first photo is really beautiful. I love that flashy color -- in lipstick, clothing, and flowers.

Incidentally, one of your Four O'Clocks is blooming -- it is white with yellow center. Lovely. They are doing well.

Those seeds are new to me. Burpee had a free shipping sale and I ordered one packet of seed because I don't have that color. I neglected mine; didn't get them planted right away. They haven't bloomed yet here, but they will. Four o clock is so tough. Since it hasn't really rained in over a month, I am appreciating them. Crepe myrtle is another I always appreciate this time of year. I used to baby Pink Velour but I haven't this year. It looks good even though I haven't watered it regularly. I am trying to keep things alive and it isn't easy.
