Sunday Photographs

This week I have photographs from around the garden. The Mexican Sunflowers and Black-eyed Susans look ratty. But my Knockout Roses are doing well, also the Firespike. Firespike is popular with hummingbirds.

Knockout Rose

Firespike is sensitive to frost, so this one grows underneath the eaves of our house. It blooms mainly in the late summer and fall. It has no noticeable fragrance.

Our water garden is beautiful right now, but different this year from last. I think, however, that is part of what I like about gardening. From year to year, its appearance changes. You never know how it'll turn out or what will bloom more than anything else.

Water Lilies

Lastly, we seem to have a good crop of Green Tree Frogs this year. If you don't like frogs, then you need to know these are native to Florida. It is good to see so many because the nonnative Cuban Tree Frogs eat them and will decimate their population if left unchecked. Here's one turned brown from his time in my watering pail.
