Not much blooming in my garden right now. I reallly have neglected the garden this year-it has just been too dang hot!
These summer poinsettias-or at least that is what I have always called them are always reliable for fall color. They are a tough annual that readily reseeds. A fun old passalong plant.Another great late summer-fall plant, that reseeds.The small bushes are covered with these small blooms.I am not sure of the correct name, I first planted these ten years ago, from seeds I received at a garden setting wedding.

This flower bed is outside the Extension office on the East side. It gets brutal sun reflected off the street and sidewalk. It always looks great, even without water though. The trick is planting tough as nails plants-potatoe vine and sedums.Too bad we have to have that bright yellow curb-it kinda takes away from the look!
