This and That for Monday....

Happy Monday.

We had more rain, over the weekend.
Not much...but, every bit is welcome....especially, the soft, gentle kind.

The sun was out, too.
So, I took a few photos.

Finally got some pretty good light on the Firecracker Fern.

I like it's airiness and those little red flowers.

This was all brown and crispy, before the rain.
It's Horse Herb.  It's amazing how fast it gets green again, with a little drink.

The Plumbago had all it's blooms beaten off, right before Bloomday.
But, it's made up for it.

This one, sticking trough the wire on the deck, is still there.
Maybe the deer do leave this plant alone.
Hmmm....might plant a trial one outside the fence, next year.

The burgundy leaf canna, planted in a pot, is finally putting on a bud.
The ones planted in the ground, don't look half as good.
That's another one of the mysteries, to me.

I was going to trim back the Knockout Rose, to let it bush out more.
I didn', look at that pretty new growth.
I just can't trim it off.

I do need to trim this boxwood, though.
Some people say take it out.  But, I think I like it.
The deer never touch it.  That makes it a favorite.

The Ruellia is blooming.
The dwarf purple....

...and, pink.

I moved this Mexican Oregano outside the fence.  The deer don't seem to bother it.
It's finally putting on some blooms.

The Echeveria are blooming.

It's an interesting little bloom.

The rain may be over for a while.  They're giving us a slight chance.
We'll have to see.

There's plenty to catch up on here, in the mean time.

Hope you're having a great Monday, wherever you are.

'Til next time...

Happy Gardening...
