Flower art Friday

Almost the end of June and I can count the number of warm sunny days on one hand. Hoping that once the 4th of July comes and goes, we will feel the warmth of the sun.

Until then, a peek at a few things growing on the patio.

 This succulent is thriving despite the cooler weather.
One sweet pea, a volunteer is trying to bloom. wish I'd remembered to plant sweet peas, I love the fragrant bouquets in the house.

The begonia, that reminds me of my mother-in-law. She always surrounded herself with this color, right down to her lipstick.

Althought the flowers are sweet, I really like the deep purple foliage this plant has.

These are beautiful. I would so welcome the cooler temps- do you know we have had .25" of precip this entire year. Seriously. We usually average at least 2" by this time & we are next to nothing & consistently at 108 all this week. Blahhhh

Love the white sweet peas! Would love to have some, just can't seem to get them to grow. And I'll gladly give you some of our warmth - 100 the last two days! :)
