I took a quick stroll around the yard when I returned home Sunday. My nap lasted until morning.
Foxglove. The yellow turned purple.
Dianthus planted in the window boxes last fall, planted in the garden in late February.
Confederate Jasmine on the chimney trellis.
Wintersown in 2008, Blue eyed grass (Sisyrinchium montanum) is blooming this year.
Clearance plants. I started a new bed. Castor beans have been sown behind. Euphorbia "Blackbird", Yucca "Yellow Stripe", and eventually a few sedums will be used here. These are drought tolerant plants for an area that stays dry most of the year. It's hot and sunny all afternoon.
Self-sown Pineapple sage. I checked a leaf for the fragrance. Three of my plants from last year have returned nearby at the end of the driveway.
It's 73 degrees and humid. There's rain in the forecast today after 8am. Scattered thunderstorms are possible. I'm hoping it rains all day.
