first time my Society Garlic has been presentable since March
Hooray! Austin finally got some measurable rain last weekend and cooler temperatures. I know it will get back up into the mid-high nineties later this week with no rain, but I'm still blissing out on today's cloudy, upper-seventies, driving with the sunroof open and the windows down weather! Thanks again to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this bloom day. Go to her blog to see LOTS of other great blooms today from around the country and the world.
oxblood lilies should be in full bloom later today
victoria salvia I never thought would have made it through the summer
can you believe how absolutely LUSH this trailing lantana and indigo spires scenario looks? A little rain can go a long way!
freaky, lovely golden shrimp plant
purple skullcap crawls back from coma because of rain
shamrock oxalis has some scorched edges but still entrances
leadwort plumbago muddled through
indigo spires now seem grateful I gave them a serious mid-summer pruning

Also blooming now are plumbago, turk's cap, purple and white ruellia, prairie verbena, rosemary, mexican bush sage, and provence lavender.
