It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

We had some more rain this week but we are not up to the normal amount of rainfall yet.
 This week my Rose of Sharon are all bloomin'.  This double pink is in my middle garden.  The Cone Flowers still look good from afar.  None of my blooms lasted long this year because of the heat.
 There are no babies from this bush, which is too bad because several people would love them.
 This one is at the end of the wild garden.  You can see all the yellow behind it from the
Black Eyed Susan's
 This is my favorite.  I love the dark pink center.

 The last Rose of Sharon is at the end of the day lily border and at the beginning of the shade garden.
 A lovely solid white.
 The orange Crocosmia are looking good mixed with the Black Eyed Susan's in the wild garden.
Can you stand one more Cone Flower?  This one is Green Envy.
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!
Sign up on Mr Linky to join the tour.

I love your different Roses of Sharon. So pretty. I would like to plant some. Your echinacea Green Envy is lovely. I have a new one in a pot with one bud on it, waiting to bloom. Can't wait.
