Happy Garden Bloggers Bloom Day (hosted by May Dreams Gardens)! Today is overcast with light sprinkles, but the past week has been pretty hard on the landscape. Austin has been lucky this year that full summer started late, but it is finally here. We're moving into the season of flame-colored blooms...
Blackfoot daisy against bronze fennel and Mexican feathergrass
Coral bean (this color makes my heart happy)
Coral bean against golden thryallis
Bronze fennel behind globe mallow
Verbena bonariensis and artemisia
Tatume squash vines in bloom (you can spot one squash to the right of the tree base...these go from baseball to softball size in less than a day!)
Trumpet vine monster
Swallowtails, ladybugs and aphids all living in fennel blooms
Loving the way dittany of crete drapes over the pot (bees love it, too)
Soapwort (Bouncing Bet) is getting leggy, but she still looks lovely
First crinum to bloom this year!
Okay, not blooms but these are from this morning's harvest and are something to look forward to in the summer garden.
