Flowers that were
Just some flowers pics. These were the boxes on the side of the house that was most damaged by the storm. They don’t look this good anymore. The two trumpet vines that were in the ground are in real bad shape too.
Before the storm, the petunias on the far end and the lobelia in the middle had been done in by the high heat. But the portulaca on the near end still looks good and is enjoying the heat. But it had been a slow starter. I had almost pulled it out because it was not blooming. Unlike the others it must need the heat to bloom.
This side of the house was covered with scaffolding. Finally, they finished the roof so I have put these boxes back and moved on to fall flowers.
