The DragonFly garden is doing well this June 15. The constant rain of the past few days has reinvigorated the grass and all my plants (as well as the weeds). Summer is the super growing season around here. I swear if you stare at a plant long enough, you can see it grow.
My feature flowers this month are:
My Night Bloomer was on que last night; I think it knew it was my birthday weekend! These are the first blooms of the season. These pictures were taken at 8am this morning and by 10am, they already had wilted.
The Gardenia has been blooming for the last couple of weeks but the plant is not doing well. The leaves are yellowish and the blooms are smaller this year.
This is the newest container in my front garden. I planted the summer annual, white Purslane, and a Pinwheel Jasmine shrub.
I purchased this bromeliad yesterday for my new bromeliad bed in the front garden. More details on this bed in my next post.
The Thryallis, a summer favorite around here, is in full bloom.
The Yellow Lantana’s by the side of the street are doing well despite all the rain.
I love the strong color on this bougainvillea. This is one of three bougainvilleas I have growing in containers, which allows me to better control the growth.
And, finally, the Blue Plumbago is beginning to bloom this month.
PS – If either of my daughters are reading this blog, a word of warning--I am not settling for just one gift on Fathers/birthday day!
