Noelle of AZ Plantlady fame. To view the complete collection, please visit her wonderful blog in my blog favorites...Ramblings From a Desert Garden. There's a small, but beautiful collection of bouquets this month.
My wife is starting to enjoy this monthly tradition. When I brought this one into the house, she just laughed and smiled. She already knew what I was going to say....Happy August! No other special occasion needed.
I really have 2 bouquets to post, mine and a friend.
She's a veteran gardener and great friend, but she won't reveal her age or how long she's been gardening! :-)
Red flowers~ Mexican fire spike, along with some yellow coreospsis and white black foot daisies.
The greenery includes cast iron plant, greenbriar (real greenbriar lol), and two types of bauhinias.
This garden bouquet is from my friend Helena L. in Danevang, Texas.
She lives on a farm there and we were out for a visit. I kept admiring the flowers and then it dawned on me; how can you have daylilies in August here in South Texas? I couldn't believe it.
These are a very old cultivar that blooms most of the summer.
The electrical cord is going to her pump house.
