We finally have a 30 percent chance of rain today, but I'm not holding my breath. That it's only 90 degrees at 1 p.m. is a breath of fresh air, however! Austin has had 85 days of triple-digit heat this year, record-breaking. Mind-numbing. And continued exceptional drought and hideous wildfires. So please forgive my tardy post and lack of botanical names in today's post. Check out other garden bloggers' blooms at May Dreams Gardens.
Thank goodness the Oxblood lilies returned, even if they're a bit puney.
I forgot what kind of salvia this is. Uhm, a white one.
Cheery potted Gerber daisy
Rain (??) lilies from Annie at The Transplantable Rose
Also blooming are Turks Cap, plumbago, leadwort plumbago, white gaura, blue daze, torenia, purple and white ruellia, and rock rose.
