I don't know about your garden, but the only things blooming for me right now are scarce and scattered, making for a sad and sorry overall garden. When you put them all together, though, it brightens your day. Enjoy

RE: August Photos

Pretty! I really must plant some zinnias next year for the butterflies:)

Instead of uploading my photos and linking here I'll just share a link to my blog. I haven't checked in here in quite a while~ Hi everyone!

Here is a link that might be useful: Little Wing Garden

RE: August Photos

Thanks! The Zinnias have been the champions of drought these past many weeks. I think these might have been State Fair seed, but I don't know for sure.
RE your photos, I love the Salvia chamedryoides, very pretty!
How do you manage to get such a large bloom on your Euphorbia corolata? Mine are so tiny!

Is that festuca glauca behind the pink and orange zinnias?

RE: August Photos

It is indeed Festuca glauca. I just purchased 3 of them this past Spring and I've been very pleased with their performance. I wish I had the variety name in front of me, but I'm not at home as I type this.

RE: August Photos

If you pull the seed stalks it will benefit the festuca so they winter over better.

What's blooming right now for me are my butterfly bushes, Russian sage, meadow sage, coreopsis, salvia, abelia, crape myrtles, and lavender is about to bloom.

RE: August Photos

Your first photo is of a skipper butterfly though which one exactly I can't tell. You can tell it's a butterfly by looking at the antennae; they resemble a matchstick (sort of) and they fly during the day. I grew the cardinal climber this year and it took over a trellis and is trying to swallow the front of my house-one plant!
