I really love the way Sahin's Early Helenium is beginning to shape up after a lot of pinching out to save flowering to the last minute ..it doesn't look like much from these pictures but this is just the 1st of August .. so I expect some great results coming along as the month slips by. Already we are back to drought conditions .. I have hoped for rain and it probably will tomorrow .. but will I get all my garden chores done tomorrow as well ? I know the garden is screaming at me and I don't blame it a bit .. poor plants. Take a look at the second picture with the fly on the left hand side ... smirking at me as I snap away .. bad fly !!

Cindee .. there are a lot of great varieties of Helenium and they are perfect for the Autumn. Read about them from the net and I bet you can find one you will like !

Hello I just had to come by seeing you are also listed on blotanical. Today we are on the same page so I'm visiting all my neighbors.
I adore your kitty portraits on your sidebar! I see that you also had a few heartbreaks. I have 3 that now are planted in my memory garden.
I now have 2 girls..black beauties who have become internet celebs..as they accompany me while I am in my own garden. Purzzzzz to you and your adorable cats! :)NG

Hey--I hope you got my msg on the Cityline Venice. I'm really sick this weekend. I'm not getting around too much except from the couch to the bed. I do love your red snapdragons with your chair cushions. You Helenium has lots of personality. Ok, I'm backoff to bed.

Anna .. hope you feel better soon ! I left messages for you on Blotanical .. thanks for your take on Cityline (I just had to try it myself ? LOL) .. stay in bed now !

Hi Laura .. it really has such a cheery colour doesn't it ? I'm a fan for sure : )

Gail .. I think I have to name that crane/heron .. maybe Herman from the Munsters ? .. big, awkward but loveable ? LOL

Hello Naturegirl .. thank you so much for the purzzzs .. I'm sure the girls will love the compliments too ! .. it is a huge heartbreak when we lose them .. something that just stays tucked away in your heart. These two I have now are real divas in their own ways .. so that is fun to watch. I have to get over and see your site ! thanks for stopping by mine : )
