some of the things blooming around here the last three weeks or so...
I don't have much full sun over at the house but the shop yard is nothing but. I started planting things over there last summer and fall and again last spring. You can't see everything in this picture because I have stuff spread around but the three on the right...yellow angel trumpet, spider lilies, and pony tail palm went in last summer while the two on the left...porterweed and plumbago...went in last spring.
Over at the house the yellow bells have been blooming all summer and are now attracting the migrating hummingbirds (and the porterweed too).
The datura, the cinco de mayo rose, and this little water plant in the filter for the water lily pond have also bloomed all summer
while the morning glory bush and the swamp lily didn't start until August.
The ox blood lilies announce the end of summer
and a couple of nights ago I had two blooms on the night blooming cereus and the night air smelled so sweet.
