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.


  1. I had forgotten all about summer poinst. I used to have them in my garden as a kid. I believe I ordered the seeds by mail. Not much color, but interesting. Thanks for the memory. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  2. I love my flowers that are faithful and come back each year!
