California Summer Color... Day 165

I have fallen into Flower Heaven.
This one flower defies my identification. I will find out eventually, if one of you can't identify it. My first thought was Rosa Foliosa, but can not find one that matches.  Hope you enjoy.  My granddaughter and I were stopped by it as we were walking down the road.

Rudbeckia 'Goldstrum'
This is a flower at the Houston LDS Temple.  The Temple grounds are always a wonderful respite in the summer.

This Time a True Rain... Day 160

I had Rain X on my windshield so I could leave the droplets.  It was a true rain this time.  Hoping for more of course.

Summer Color Pentas and Angeloina... Day 157

I have run out of new CrapeMyrtles to capture.  I have a Twilight and a Burgandy cotton that should start blooming... Hoping before my granddaughter is born.  The short of it is I have pictures I took in Houston at the Houston Latter Day Saint Temple. Their gardens are to die for.

Red Pentas tucked in White and Purple Angeloina (these are called the summer snapdragon)  The tiger day lily in the back ground was the only one.

Summer Color CrepeMyrtle Purple... Day 152

Probably a Catawba CrapeMyrtle.  The purple CrapeMyrtle's do not hold their color well.  It still is my favorite

Southern Summer Color Series ...Day 150

It has begun, the crapemyrtles have begun to bloom their hearts out.  They offer the South a wonderful kaleidoscope of color. Sometimes it is even on the same tree.  For the next few days I will be posting the different colors along our city street.  You can choose what your favorite would be.  I raised these and knew all their different names, but now I have a hard time identifying the pinks and reds, so many of them.
This is probably a Tuskegee (knowing what they sell here).

Why I Forgot Day 149

An old film reader/scanner.  Btw, this is the director and she made a great find on this film!

Figs the Promise of Jelly... Day 145

I didn't realize I had caught the rain drops... I was trying to show you every branch is covered with figs.     
Yummy fresh or made into preserves.
