Show and Tell Monday!

OK, I have to admit I do Love my garden. Even though it is August in Florida, I still love visiting all the wonderful blooms in the garden. The Angel Trumpet has finally bloomed this year. It's sweet fragrance fills the back yard in the evenings. The two colored Sunflowers look as if they are wishing each other warmth from the morning sun. The bright red Texas Star Hibiscus is full of blooms that the hummingbirds frequent often. We should have about 4 more months to enjoy God's generous gift to us. I will be sure to share all the moments with you.

the angel trumpet is spectacular. Would be nice to sit with a cup of tea at night with that fragrance wafting about.

You are a fabulous photogragher...the kissing sunflowers are so much fun and the Hibiscus is a work of art. The trumpets are not so bad either...actually they are gorgeous! God's creations are amazing, aren't they? Thank you for sharing your joy of your garden with us! Just lovely!!

The flower show is marvellous, good photos. Summer is such a lovely time of year. It would be lovely to work in your garden with the angel trumpet scent, very inspirational.

Beautiful flowers and photos! I love that picture of the sunflowers greeting each other, that should be made into some kind of positive thought poster!! If you do make it into one I want a copy!

I love all of your flower photos, but I'm especially attracted to sunflowers!

Wow Inka that is a beautiful garden. So much color. I wish I could grow such pretty things.

Cathy said...

Inka, you are killing me with those photos. It has rained so much here in N.E. that all of my flowers are on the ground. I can't even get any pretty pictures of my garden this summer. I'm so bummed out.

Keep those pretty pics coming.
