Marcy Still Has Flowers!

although I can't imagine why.
The ground is dry,
The sun beats down,
The dew is the only moisture,
yet they survive
and awe me with their beauty.

They look beautiful. We still have flowers but we have had lots of rain along with the dang heat=big humidity. Next week will be a hot one so I am thinking you will have the same. Enjoy all that wonderful water on your property Gail :)

Beautiful flowers, someone has a green thumb. I can't grow zinnias for the life of me, is there some "green thumb society" secret?

They're hardy, like the people who worked this land and made our country strong.

They are just beautiful...don't look a bit exhausted from the heat. Mine really look tired after several days of no rain and triple digit temps.

Have a great one sweetie!!!

The flowers look lovely. Ours have had regular rain showers now, though it hasn't been enough yet. Things are still a bit dusty. You sure do appreciate rain after a heatwave. It's wonderful stuff.

Not only does she have a green THUMB, but she must also have a green HAND! Just beautiful flowers!
