These two mini hibiscus were new to my garden this year. They are only a foot tall, but they have had continuous blossoms. Hopefully they’ll come up again next year!
This was taken at Smith College. Since no one will be able to go to their show this year I thought others might like a reminder of their students efforts

The huge black and yellow garden spider is very beneficial to your garden so don’t kill it.
Our Silk Tree has been blooming for six weeks and is just finishing, really outdid itself! Albizia Julibissin is it’s proper name, some call it a Mimosa Tree.
This Black Swallowtail is loving the bright orange Butterfly Weed which is also a favorite of the humming birds.
This picture plant which grows on the edge of my pond had two beautiful blossoms which have lasted in different stages for months. Right now in August they are all green, I imagine they are about done.
