Today's Flowers: August in bloom

There is a single gardenia left on the bush which looks quite happy with the rain and cooler temperatures.
The black-eyed susan (rudbeckia) on my deck has a few blooms making a come-back.
Most of them bloomed early and have already gone to seed.
Nice to have a few of these cheerful yellow flowers left.
All of my different varieties of rose of sharon (hibiscus) are still in bloom.
I am surprised that everything didn't succumb to the summer heat wave.
I am very happy that it is slightly cooler now.
Click for the home of Today's Flowers which is returning next week.

I can almost smell the gardenia -- and that last photo (is it a Rose of Sharon?) certainly looks more delicate than it apparently is.

Beautiful flowers today. I haven't been able to add anything as my regular computer broke down on me on Friday. I am happy hubby bought me an IPAD for my birthday but I miss being able to add any photos to my blog. Haven't figured if I can do that yet.

Thanks for visiting. The last shot is rose of sharon (the last 3 are).

The gardenia is "delicious" - looks like fancy candy.
