We had some wonderful rain! Just about an inch maybe altogether, but with the watering we had been trying to do it was enough to make my flowers start blooming! The Althea tree is in full bloom.
The Ice Plant is enjoying creeping out from under the Four O'clocks.
The Four O'clocks are just starting to bloom. I have yellow and red ones planted.
I put out several Zinnia's but not all came up. The ones that did are so pretty!
Blue Salvia and Marigolds ( need a bit of attention I think) are suppose to be more tolerant of our area but haven't done as well as in past years.
The Big surprise was how big the few Straight-necked Squash got this year. We have had lots of yummy squash to eat, but not tomatoes. Sadly,the tomatoes died a few weeks ago.
The Oxiliad ( I think?) we just put next to our porch area liked the rain also.
Mixed in with the Zinnia's are some Moss Roses, Morning Glories, Batchlor
Buttons, Cosmos, and Periwinkles.
That is all that is in bloom for now. Have a wonderful day! Hope your flowers are in bloom too!
