Heaven on Earth

Sunshine in the garden.

Bring on the heat, you can't stop Marigolds from blooming.

Maybe I will stick to the Mari's and Zinnias next summer.
They seem to be scorch proof.
Oh, and did I mention beautiful?

Of course, sunflowers are the true summer beacon.

A taste of sunshine come down to earth.

Hope you haven't wilted yet!

Yours unflinchingly, P.

Pin It!

Hey Miss Pam-
It is so hot here I almost feel used to it.
I am headed out to do some yard work before it is fully light out.

Your posts sound like you have had a great summer!

I think I'm melting, or at least wilting. I love your zinnias and for thought next year.

The best thing with marigolds is that you can let a few flowers go to seed and then there heaps of seeds to scatter round the garden for next year. I can grow these all year round. I'm all for plants like that, its just remembering where you put the seeds when it comes planting time again.

Pam - I love my marigolds too. I've got some called "Butter Cream" I think...they're almost white. Your flowers are beautiful! Stay cool!!
