Flower of the Month

A couple of years ago I brought home a paper cup full of seedlings weeded out of the garden at the Eudora Welty House and Garden Museum and they are still thriving here OPP…

Cypress vine or Cardinal vine or Maiden feather – whatever you call it I love it…

It blooms from summer til frost and will grow just about anywhere you have full sun.  It was late in the day when I snapped these shots and my blooms were already bedding down for the night…

So I grabbed a couple of photos from Parkseed.com to show you the flowers…

My flowers are all red but I love the mixed colors…

Anything that blooms through the heat of a Mississippi summer is a hands down choice for July’s flower of the month!

I hope you are surviving the heat…
