The containers are brimming full of blooms and I have been watering every day. It feels like early Sept not August!

DH loves to create new containers, this one has a couple of house plants tucked in among the begonias.

The impatiens has survived but only because DH waters all the containers every day.

Usually my nemesia stops blooming in August and comes back in September--this year, which is hotter than h * * *, it has done very well.

It must be glorious over there in your garden! Looking beautiful & that hibiscus is the prettiest red one I ever saw! I was out there with the hose today & hoping for rain! My mailbox vine was drooping & it forced me outside inspite of possible rain overnight. What a summer!

Oh my gosh...how pretty and vibrant. They don't look heat stressed at all. Love that Angel Wing begonia.......I remember when mine looked like that!!
Thanks for sharing and give your DH a pat on the back for a job well done.

Thanks for the compliments but most go to DH with his container ideas and his daily watering.
