Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

These are today's bloomies at my house, most of which are native or adapted native and all of which are fairly drought tolerant. Still, they've all needed a little watering, considering yesterday was our 49th day of 100-degree-plus temperatures and we've had so little rain. Check out other people's selections at May Dreams Gardens.

lantana, but I think it's some new hybrid variety, not native

indigo spires
