Today's Flowers: Perking up
My crepe myrtle tree is still blooming and is perking up my back yard.
We have finally had a break from the horrid heat so hopefully more and more flowers will be perking up.
The first two shots are from my yard. The shots below of the canna lily were taken at a park near me.
Most of the canna lilies at this park were fried during the hot stage of summer but a few blossoms are still looking good.
There were a few wild rudbeckia on a trail I walked on but the heat and drought have definitely eliminated many of the wildflowers.
There were also some morning glories making a comeback.
Hopefully we are past the worse part of summer and with rain as well as cooler temperatures I hope we'll see more wildflowers make a comeback.
