Bloomin Sunday

Here are some recent bloomers in my garden.

Heat Wave, Lantana, Blue Sky

It is a good day to stay inside, I spent over an hour early this morning watering everything that the hose could reach. When I was finished, the dogs and the cat were all laying in front of the door as if to say, hurry up and let us in. I took a few pictures for the Sunday Blooms. I liked the way these turned out. Nothing is prettier than blue sky. The last photo is marigolds, the others are Lantana, I am sure people in the south will wonder why I grow Lantana at all as I have heard it is weed like in the south. I grow it as a pot plant because it will not survive Iowa's winters.
