Bloomin' Tuesday...


We are finally getting a break in the heat in Colorado. For weeks we've been topping the thermometer around 100, but the forecasts say we will be at least 10 degrees cooler for the foreseeable future. I'm grateful. It's hard to keep a garden limping along at such high temperatures, and I can tell already that my plants are giving a little sigh of relief as they perk back up. I just came inside from taking this potpourri of photos. I love this time of the morning when there's a coolness to the air and the plants are just waking up...








I hope you're basking in some cooler temps as well!

All your flowers look beautiful! And that apple looks DELICIOUS and perfectly shaped too. :) I especially like the shot of the 2 mixed containers with the coral million bells in the fore ground, million bells are one of my favorites. Mine died out a few weeks ago, I think the heat got to them and possibly a "bug". :( Enjoy your cooler temps!
