~ Calla Lily ~
Hmmm . . . somebunny thinks she is hiding here. I hope she isn't planning to eat these like she has eaten some of my other flowers. Ahem!!
~ Lantana ~
One of the best performers in our drought conditions.
~ Aucuba ~
I love the green and yellow foliage. This one is called "Mr. Goldstrike".
~ Black Eyed Susan ~
~ A magnolia bud ~
~ Starting to unfurl ~
This plant with it's gorgeous glossy foliage and breathtakingly beautiful blossoms is awesome. Mine is a smaller version called "Little Gem" but I have seen huge ones here that amaze me no matter how many times I see them.
~ Hydrangea ~
Step into my herb garden. It's not big, but it has all the herbs I use in cooking and it's right outside my kitchen door so it is convenient.
~ Basil, Lemon Balm & Summer Savory ~
Our climate is very conducive to growing rosemary. It grows profusely and is available for cutting all year long.
Thank you so much for touring my garden today. It was a pleasure to have you. I have been really enjoying reading about what's blooming on some of your blogs. It is so interesting to see the different things that grow in backyards across our great country.
Remember today is Flag Day ~ get out your flag and fly it proudly. Whatever your plans include for this weekend, I hope you enjoy them ****
