Ok, Ok. . maybe not quite red, white, and blue. . but they are all close on the color wheel!! Here are some of the new blooms this week. Can you believe that below is a SUNFLOWER blooming already?? It was blooming before July 1. It's name is Red Sun--and it was a cheap pack at Walmart! I direct seeded these ladies in my new corner bed-and am not going to be disappointed by them!!
The whites in my garden right now are the daisies that I showed ya'll a few weeks ago--they are still just blooming and blooming!! I also tried some plain white zinnias, which are just OK. This is really the first year I have ever tried planting them--and I chose a few plain colors--white, hot pink and purple. They are sure filling in things nicely for $2.00 for the lot of them!!
And the bluish. . actually purple--I really like the purple zinnias. . but my favorite purple right now??
The Zuni crapemyrtle in the far back below!!
We weren't disappointed. . and now more ready than ever for the displays tomorrow night!! Wishing everyone yummy food, good company, no burnt fingers, no food borne illness from your BBQ (sorry, just always thinking "health") and a set of goosebumps while you watch the "bombs bursting in air" remembering the men and women who made our holiday possible--yesterday AND today!!
God bless America!!!
