Cleome flowers.....haven't grown these in twenty years until this year. They are an old heirloom flower and these are about 3-4 feet tall. So far, they are holding up pretty well to the Florida Sun and Summer heat that hovers around 100 degrees Fahrenheit just about every day.
These are in front of my garage, along with lots of other flowers at lower levels. Earlier in the year I had sunflowers planted along the wall and if you look closely, you can see one of them bowed over (making seeds). I wonder if the birds will get to the mature seeds before me! :-)

Actually it was a little bright but the sun had gone down and I added the shadow around the edge to tone it down a bit.

I live Cleome.....in fact I did a painting a few years ago, and it's called 'Cleome' even though it's not the main subject of the composition.....will have to take a shot of it....

Thanks Glenn. Just buy a pkt. of seeds and throw them out, letting them fall where they may. May be too late for this year???

Yes I do Ruth. North Florida is perfect for any kind of gardening. Best vegetable gardening is in the winter months for the things I like to grow. I still have a few tomatoes on the vine ripening. Cucumbers have finished. Any kind of pepper grows year round. Bell peppers seem to last only one season, but all other kinds I have grown produce prolifically constantly, but like to be re-potted about every three years. (I always grow peppers in pots, albeit large ones with wire supports)

Such pretty flowers, Larry. Don't think I've seen them before - except recently on Barbara's painting.
