The cycle continues

I may have lost a few things in the storm yesterday, but some plants took advantage of the rain.

The first Althea bloom of the year.

The cardinal climber vine has begun. In a week or so, the arbor will be covered with red blooms that the hummingbirds adore.

Reseeded cleome is blooming. The purple is new. I only had white and pink last year.

The first hosta bloom.

Salvia subrotunda is sporting new blooms today too.

The Persian shield near the front door loved the rain.

Datura metel split its seedpods yesterday.

It's 70 degrees and sunny. High in the upper 80s today. It's still not normal weather for us this time of year. We should be in the upper 90s in July. I'm not complaining.
