I awoke during the middle of last night to the gentle pitter-patter of raindrops. It's been at least a month since even a smidgen of rain has occurred so this was indeed a welcome sound. Today I took some photos.
I'm not a huge Daylily fan but I've got five plants in my garden. 'Purple D'Oro' is my newest, although it's not all that new. Just new to me. I was attracted to the idea of a repeat bloomer.
This is one of my newest Fuchsias. I buy them by the dozen [not really, well almost] at Fry Road Nursery.
Campanula punctata 'Cherry Bells' really wants to take over.
I should have located this plant in a better place. I say this a lot.
Speaking of "Cherry," my Nasturtium container is going to town.
I kind of like the unkempt look. Am I nuts?
Penstemon 'Sunburst Amethyst' is a stalwart.
This dwarf Gaura is just coming on.
Lookie my Yucca, Loree. It's going to bloom!
The Dahlias [above and below] I bought at Costco last spring are blooming!
I really love these Alstromerias.
My Verbena rigida are in full array.
Several years ago I purchased a six-pack of this little annual Baby's Breath.
Since then it has reliably reseeded in various pots.
My new white Abutilon [Flowering Maple] is small but a prolific bloomer.
Geranium 'Elke' I love this pink!
This is a freebie Monkey Flower. I love this color too!
My Cordyline has doubled in size since last year.
And finally, my blueberries are starting to ripen. Hooray! I need all the brain food I can get.
To all of you in the midst of the heatwave, I'm sending you cool thoughts.
