My garden is just starting to recover from our hot, dry summer. 7 inches of rain the week before didn't hurt. Many plants died, and many fall bloomers are late, but these are on track.
Wild morning glory.
Blackfoot daisies and trailing lantana, with some of that darned bermuda grass mixed in, grr.
"Senorita Rosalita" cleome.
A bee drinking from an 'Indigo Spires' salvia blossom.
Salvias and rock rose.
Mealy blue sage.
