Crazy how fast this year is moving… stop the race! I want to get off and smell the flowers. When this date rolled around, at first I wasn’t even sure there would be anything worth documenting in the garden that you hadn’t seen before, but alas – there were a couple of things. For reports from all the other corners of the world, visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens .
First up is the annual I discovered this year – Salpiglossis. Love that brown velvety color.
Recently found this Fuchsia. Of course none of the blooms were open today, but trust me – they are pretty cool. They are the darkest, velvety black!
Leonothis leonurus is taking a second stab at blooming.
Anisacanthus quadrifidus – my hummingbird bush (new for this year) decided to bloom, despite not really receiving the amount of light it likes. Such pretty blooms!
A rescued NOID Abutilon keeps the sun shining in the shade!
The pink bracts of the ornamental oregano ‘Kent’s beauty’ in front of this awesome rosette of foliage. I think it is some kind of Eryngium, but please correct me if you know for sure!
Snapshot from my side garden. Eryngium, grasses, Euphorbia, Myrtle, Agastache, Sysiringium, and Stachys ‘Bella grigio’.
Bouteleia grass ‘Blonde Ambition’, Little blue stem grass, Euphorbia ‘Fen’s Ruby, Corokia and Artemisia ‘Ever Goldy’.
Well, that’s about it for this month! 🙂
