Despite the cloud and rain...

Zaluzianskya just started blooming, missing bloom day by a few days.

Nasturtiums everywhere, they are having some party! I tried to grow lettuces here, and after the lettuce was eaten by giant slugs, these happy flowers showed up and stayed.

And inside, my thunbergia still blooms nicely all summer.

Oooh, how cute! The sites for seeds of Zaluzianskya say it's fragrant, too - very cool, Silvia.

Yes, it does have an evening fragrance when the blooms open. Then early the next day, they close up again.

Wow! That Zaluzianskya is cool. I don't think I have seen that one before.

Thanks for visiting my blog on bloom day :)

I just wanted to let you know that the Helianthus is called "Lemon Queen". It is a perennial, but very hardy. In my zone it dies back in the winter, but by August it is 6 feet tall. It forms woody stems that support the plant. It is very common and can be divided.

Your Zaluzianskya looks delicate.
Cute flowers. :)
The Nasturium is big!
I didn`t grow them this summer.
Every year i get some caterpillars on them. So i don`t know if i will give them up....
I have some seeds, with a mixture of colours on the flowers.
Maybe i have to sow them next spring, after seeing your picture.
The flowers are decorative in salads.
Your Thunbergia is beautiful.
I don`t have that plant this summer either. I had it last year.
Do you keep it inside during winter?
Wishing you a great week. :)
The last one in August...

ida, my nasturtiums are also eaten by caterpillars every year, many many of them. But there are so many nasturtiums that it doesn't really affect them. And the next year, there are many butterflies!
