Well, it's been a few weeks since I've posted so I'm kinda playing catch-up. This first photo is from a week ago. Last Sunday, I spent several hours cleaning up and transplanting in my hummingbird garden. The next morning when I came out to look at my work, I found this fungus growing - blooming? - underneath a clump of Salvia "Black and Blue." It only lasted that day and was gone by the time I came home from work in the evening. I have no idea what it is but it is amazing! (You can click on the picture for a larger view.)
My Balloon Flowers have finished blooming, but when they were blooming, they sure were beautiful.
You can see why they are called "Balloon Flowers" - their buds look like little balloons!
Oh, so lovely!
Along my path to my back door, I have planted Mealy Cup Sage and "Coral Nymph" Salvia. Both these Salvias are treated as annuals here, but sometimes the Mealy Cup Sage (the blue one) will over-winter. The "Coral Nymph" Salvia is very good about reseeding.
The yellow flower is Threadleaf Coreopsis. I love the color combinations!
Even though I have several Hydrangeas, I only have one blooming this year. I think it got too cold this past winter for the other ones, so although they survived, they aren't going to bloom this summer.
This Hydrangea is called Mini-Penny. It is a smaller bush and very charming!
Have a beautiful day!
SOMETIMES YOU JUST GET LUCKY
