what's blooming

These are some random pictures of what’s blooming in the yard. It’s been hot and dry since it quit being cold and rainy. I think that has thrown bloom cycles off. Luckily, we don’t have a watering ban so we have been able to keep our hosta, ligularia, marsh marigold and all our other water hungry plants from biting the dust.


 This is the first ligularia flower. We shouldn't see these for another 3 weeks.

Hi Jim... I too am watering 24 hours a day and the plants are doing ok... however, well water can't compare to rain water. Hostas seem to fare well with either however, and they are looking good. I am anxious for "monsoon season" to arrive... or at least a good two inches... what the heck... I'd even settle for a little hail about now! Larry

Beautiful blooms! I know, everything is at least three weeks ahead here also.
