|I don't have a lot of these morning glories blooming now;|
but the ones that are - are striking!
It has been a tremendous year in my area for Indian blankets (Gaillardia pulchella). I would show you a lovely picture, only they don't grow on our place! We have a few this year that popped up from seeds thrown a year and a half ago. Maybe they will spread seeds, and their offspring will be ready the next time perfect conditions arise.
|Texas thistle (Cirsium texanum) taking over the septic drain field|
|Horsemint (Monarda citriodora),|
also on the drain field.
|Mexican hat (Ratibida columnifera)|
does well here.
|Lady Bird's centaury (Centaurium |
texense) named for our beloved
Lady Bird Johnson.
|Blackfoot daisies (Melampodium leucanthum)|
are still blooming!
|Dahlburg daisies (Thymophylla |
tenuiloba) are not native here,
but have naturalized in my yard.
Day flower (Commelina erecta) with rain lilies (Cooperia sp.),
naturally occurring in a flowerbed.
I hope you've enjoyed my blooms! Now head over to May Dreams Gardens to see what is happening in other gardens this month.
