My backyard goes through so many gardening phases during the year but I'm always happy when things really start to bloom in the summer. My garden is in a good "bloom" phase right now, so I wanted to share some pics. To see more of my backyard, click HERE
|The butterfly bush is going strong. :)
|Here's one of the vitex trees.
|Vitex blooms up close
|The vitex is virtually maintenance free. It thrives in our heat.
|This yellow esperanza blooms all summer long.
|I finally found a spot where the blue plumbago is happy. :)
|The orange esperanza does just as well as the yellow one.
|I've had these begonias for years. They just keep coming back year after year.
|I finally had to replace my petunias. They just couldn't take the heat. The yellow one is melampodium, on the bottom of the plant stand is ageratum, and in the pot to the right is angelonia.
|We also planted a white angelonia.
|Jett, Cal, and Jim are enjoying the warm weather. :)
|I'm trying this scaevola in the window box. We'll see how it does in the heat.
|The knockout roses are still doing great!
