It's Just Beautiful

I just took my "garden tour" a few minutes ago - it doesn't take long nowadays - and I just had to take a picture of my Mandevilla vine. It is just loaded with blooms and is growing so tall and lush. The vines are loaded with buds - what a beauty.

A couple of other pictures - the fancy leaf begonia in the planter on my front stoop. How pretty it is also. The other is a picture of a hanging basket on the outside of my privacy fence with the geraniums, sweet allysum, another white lacey flower and a little pink flamingo. Some of the little begonias are not doing as well this summer as in the past - probably not enough hot weather. This old gal does better in the cooler weather, though! Temperaturewise, I have enjoyed this summer very much. (Click to enlarge)

Beautiful flowers! I spent a couple of nice days in the garden, weeding and deadheading.
