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 in Arkansas


Angel Wing Begonia




Some kind of day lily - not sure about this one!



This Easter Lily is going to be a really, really, really late bloomer!



Mandevilla

And even the herbs are loving this heat!


Lavender



Oregano



Rosemary

Sage



Thyme

The lemons are growing quickly!


And Grandma's Rain Lily just keeps on and on blooming.


It's a hot, hot summer day in the south ya'll.  Time for a tall icy glass of sweet tea!

Enjoy that sweet tea! My DH loves to have that on our trips to Alabama! The herbs and flowers all look like the heat is ok with them-lovely!

I do not have a green thumb nor the inclination to work on it. I will enjoy yours.

My angel wing begonias haven't even come close to blooming yet.

Those pink lilies are surprise lilies or naked ladies, which ever name you prefer.

My rain lilies are on their 3rd blooming spell.

Beautiful flowers.

Peace my friend

I just love seeing everyone's lovely flowers (we lost so many with our late cold spell). The lilies are just lovely and oh to have such wonderful herbs.

Looking good.

We call those lilies Surprise lilies. They have foliage early, that dies down then the stalks with flowers shoot up...Surprise!

Have a blessed week.

Your garden looks amazing. I'm surprised how fresh and perky everything looks. I think of Arkansas as being so brutally hot and humid in the summer. You must have a very green thumb!
