Goat's Beard? and Other Garden Flowers back in Summer!
Sights and scenes from my summer garden
for you today.....(and a few stolen from other's gardens!)
The blooms are long gone now, but I will remember their beauty for a long time, thanks to photography!
These are blooms on a bunch of bushes in our yard by the lake. Someone told me they were Goat's Beard.
Are they right?:
If they aren't Goat's Beard, does anyone know what they are???
These are Musk Mallow and they come in light pink and dark pink:

These were NOT in my garden. But I wish they WERE!!
Aren't they the neatest flower EVER?:
Okay...I promise this is the END of all my flower garden posts
until next spring....
I may sneak a few in now and then in some other posts during the winter,( just to get over the snow blues),
but I know you are tired (by now!) of all of the series I did on flowers.
