GBBD July 2008

We are in the hot dry part of summer here in North Texas.
The ground is dry and the plants are waiting for rain.
Blooms this time of year are the tough bunch, the tried and true, the natives.
Here is the Texas Star hibiscus. Just the flower this time. No silliness

Grandpa Ott's morning glory comes up from seed every year. It begins to bloom in July and keeps on until late fall.

These are the very first Turk's cap blooms. A little pitiful, but give it a chance. Come September this baby will put on a show with a nekid lady. Sorry, silly came out.
Thanks again to Carol of May Dreams Garden for hosting Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.
