The garden is definitely slowing down,but it's still pretty out there...
Im Garten geht es nun schon viel ruhiger zu, aber es gibt immer noch schoenes zu sehen...

    1. You mean the hibiscus? I love that one, too - it was a mother's day gift last year. I've been wanting to do a collage for the header, but it took me forever to figure out how to do it. I'm a bit computer challenged when it comes to stuff like that. That's three hours of my life I'm never getting back...

  2. I love that purple Clematis and the honeysuckle--gorgeous colors. I bet the hummingbirds love that one!

    1. Thank you Sue. Normally we only get the clematis to bloom in the spring, but this year it decided to show off one more time. The hummers do love the honeysuckle and the yellow one is so fragrant.

    1. I know, that's what ours normally does. No idea why it decided to bloom again, but I'll take a second showing. :-)

  5. I meant to tell you before that I loved the header as well.
    The second photo down...is that a sink drain? If it is, I am jealous.
    Oh, wait....I think it is a bundt cake??? Damn old lady eyes here. :)
    Love all your color....gorgeous.

  6. Beautiful, Anke! Is the little bush with the white pom-pom flowers a lantana or a viburnum? (4th down from the top) ~ Lynda

    1. Lynda, I'm ashamed to admit I don't remember. :-( I bought two of them to plant into a planter I had and it turned out they were to big. Into the flower bed they went, but I didn't keep the little tag. Hanging my head in shame...
