Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Summer Might Be Ending.....

but here at Sager Brown it's lingering in some beautiful ways!  We're still getting an occasional gardenia.
And the hibiscus have new blooms every day!
  Periwinkles, as my mother-in-law used to call them, (vinca) peek out where they're hidden in the herb bed.
You might have to help me out but I think this is Russian Sage....anyone know?
The Hibiscus are everywhwere!



Sometimes when I look at the beautiful setting I'm surrounded by I wish I was an art quilter and could make a quilt that looked like this.  That's certainly not my gift but it would be so cool!

Don't forget my post from a couple of days ago - it's now 97 days til Christmas!  It's time to be making those gifts.  :)

I love this transition time as summer lingers and the early colors of fall start to emerge!

I could spend a lot of time under that tree. Purely peaceful.
Loved the hibiscus, reminds me of Florida.

Lovely flowers..the lavender is called Mexican bush sage,, I had the dark purple but I do like the one you have too. If you'll notice the leaves are somewhat like sage but not edible. Have a lovely day.I didn't know that about vinca.. Thanks

Nope, not Russian Sage. I have the Russian Sage growing in my yard. We have had two straight days of 90+ degrees. Summer weather still has us in it's grip.
