Two quotes from our 35th President, John F Kennedy
"We dare not forget that we are the heirs of that first revolution"
"And so, my fellow Americans...ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."
May all of you, my dear readers, enjoy the celebration of family and friends.
It's easy to see why I love the Rudbeckia flower...
This summer, rain has been the constant companion of the garden. So unlike most years, when we are praying for a little rain in June and July.
The stems and foliage are almost waist high to me.
The variegated foliage of the canna gives the garden a tropical look.
My flowers gardens always include daylilies. They give so much for so little care. The blooms only last for one day, with a single stem producing four or five buds. The stem then provides beauty with another bloom, for each following day.
Another faithful flower is the chrysanthemum. If pinched back, after the early blooms, you will get another showing in the Fall.
