This time of year, most of our garden is rather lackluster, but the Crepe myrtles are putting on a show.
We have four of these beauties. They usually bloom the middle of July, but they're a couple of weeks late this year.
Our Natchez crepe myrtle is really looking good.
It was put in three years ago, when we had the walkway done.
These pink Vinca all reseeded themselves from last year...along with one or two yellow Lantana.
The Autumn Joy sedum, in the middle...
...and this one, were planted at the same time. It amazes me that they look so different.

Do you think it looks like a snake?
The Banana peppers are producing a LOT...why did I plant so many?
Butterflies are loving the Zinnias.

Thanks for visiting our cottage garden.
Let me fill a bag with some Banana peppers for you to take home. :)
