blooming this week

May 3, 2014

Our landscape designer visited this week and brought along a variety of coneflower that I don’t believe I’ve ever seen – a prairie coneflower.  So I’m looking forward to seeing those blooms.  In the meantime, a few new plants joined the host of blossoms throughout the yard.  Below the prolific bottlebrush, covered with honey bees and the buddleia blue chip.

Assorted salvias surrounding the pool with amaryllis and portulaca below.

With warm days and nights here, soil temps are increasing to the point where we should see much more growth and profuse blooms.  Aided with a healthy supply of water and nutrients.  Nothing about gardening is ever as carefree as it might appear.

Hope you enjoy your weekend!
