In Bloom Today
« on: Sep 30, 2015, 10:45:35 PM »
I thought this would be better than summer/fall/winter blooms... since we are all kind of hit and miss with posting them, but I like looking at everyone else's, so here is mine to share.

I have 3... actually they are fading today but were at their peak earlier this week...

hurricane lilies




mandevilla


native morning glories aka bindweed

I like the hurricane lilies. They're cool
Dear Lord, On this day, please wrap your arm around my shoulder and keep your hand over my mouth.  Amen

The rain has taken care of those blooms.  Rained too hard for too long and beat them to death.

My entire yard is blooming today just like it's April or May.  I hope it blooms again when it's REALLY April and May.

The indoor plants are blooming and the daffodils are coming up.  I look forward to their bright yellow faces.  I was tempted by the tulips at WalMart.  if the voles, moles, and squirrels didn't gobble them right up I'd probably get a few.

The confederate jasmine, the other leggy yellow plant and the daffodils are all blooming I've got to figure out the camera thing.

my azaleas died.  I don't think I gave them enough additives for the soil here.

The plum tree is in full bloom.  I wish I had another one so I could get plums.  It wants to cross pollinate.

the first tulip outside has bloomed.  I almost missed it among all the weeds.

Trying to keep potted snap dragons alive but it gets so hot they droop and I'm afraid to water them in the heat of the day.  Does anyone else have this problem?

sit the pot in a plate/bowl of water and let them suck it up from the bottom as needed.

The dish dries out faster than the plant does.  But maybe I could do that during the heat of the day.  Thanks for the tip.  I really need to get out there with the camera.

Appropriately named.  And they are fierce like a hurricane.  They come up even though they're under landscape fabric.
