Bloomin Tuesday- A bit of rain

We've had a sprinkle this morning. So grateful for the rain . There has been more rain in the last  4 weeks than we had in June and July.
Still the garden is showing signs   of the dryness we had.
The Autumn Joy sedum and Molina grass are  not happy. Sedum instead of being  pretty pink  is brown  and the grass  is sparse .
 The   Japanese Anemone is  showing more flowers but not nearly the  usual amount.

Fall flowering clematis is starting to show  . I  combined it with  morning glories and the cherry tomatoes entwined  all by  itself.... a fine mess I will have to clean up this fall .
will have a challenge to  untwine    these 3 plants
This clematis  has very small  flowers  but is   a nice fall garden addition
Lastly more pictures of the morning glory. One from inside on a bright sunny day , like the flowers peeking in the window......

Pretty to see from inside.
 One this grey morning......

So full of blooms
 It helps to  journal about the garden  it shows mistakes and  where  adjustments need to be made ..note to self ... more colour for the fall......

Your morning glories look glorious. And the anemones are still beautiful at whatever size they got to. Glad that you have gotten some rain now.

No mistakes, just learning opportunities! Love those morning glories all-day-long!

Hi Rosemary,

I'm glad to hear you received a little bit of rain. We are do for a shower tonight. Your Anemones look nice and the Morning Glories are stunning! Wish I had planted some this year. Blessings - Donna

Love the view of the morning glories from inside. Perfect shot! I think we have all suffered from the weather this year. It must be a little to find all those tomatoes. Jean

We have had a good deal of rain although it is a little late for the garden to be looking good this fall. My garden is very quiet. A few roses and a smattering of other things...that's it. I could write the same note to self!

We've yet to get any decent and the garden is really showing it.
