I have been under the weather so I didn't do any gardening for a week. I had to this morning, most of my plants that I love grow very tall. The dahlias,( the yellow ones) get 8-10 feet tall and produce huge blooms. They have just started blooming.The pink are hardy hibiscus they get about 6ft but the dinner plate size blooms easily pull them over with a little wind. They are in my back garden by the pool.
I took some pictures of the front yard gardens because you lose a lot of blooms in heavy rains. Of course you get a great re-bloom fairly quickly too.
