Here we are again. The middle of the month. This time, September. This year is moving fast.
It's still summer type temperatures here in Texas. And, the drought is still going strong.
But, we don't give up. So, we join Carol at May Dreams Garden for Bloomday.
Ladybug plant stake...glows in the dark.
It's been depressing around here, with all the dead grass and stressed out trees. So, when I went out to take photos, I was a bit surprised how many I got.
The pot, above, with the Ladybug stakes, has been a regular bloomer.
Bougainvillea still going strong.
This morning glory shows up every year. It hitchhiked down from our old garden, with some other plant.
The cannas have been slow about blooming. This one finally put on some blooms this week.
You can depend on this cleome "Senorita Margarita".
And, Mexican Petunia...ruellia
And, a taller, pink version of Ruellia
This Coral Nymph salvia coccinea came back from the dead, after last winter's freezes.
The Hyacinth Bean is blooming.
The Thryallis hasn't grown very tall, but it's blooming nicely.
The Knockout rose is putting on some new blooms.
The Purple Heart has a small bloom, but it adds to the appeal of this old fashioned favorite.
Over in the veggie garden, there are more volunteer flowers than veggies.
This cosmos reseeded this summer....blooming away, and reseeded some more.
The same with this orange Zinnia.
And, there was no celosia ever planted in here.
Must have come in with some compost. Looks good, though.
I'm grabbing seeds whenever I can from this Narrow leaf zinnia.
I hope I can have them in several places next year. They're very good performers.
After a very slow start, the Coral Vine is finally putting on some blooms.
The most dependable 'bloomer' is the bottle tree.
Let's hope this drought breaks soon, or this might be my only bloomer.
So, what's blooming in your garden?
Stay safe...pray for rain.
