Things slowing down a little... Desert Willow, Mexican Bird of Paradise are in bloom. Mohave Sage is starting. Yucca blooms were swept away in a hail storm. Water Lilies and Water Iris blooming in the pond. Lavender, Valarian, Dianthus, and Geraniums blooming in pots. A cactus bloomed briefly. Wildflowers mostly faded away.

Just for the heck of it, I planted a desert willow several years ago in a sandy, sunny spot in my yard in Central Florida. It never got very big, but man, what beautiful blooms. Drove by the house in March and it is still there; actually looking a bit better than when we sold in January of 2017.

My sister planted some mint last year which has taken off. She also planted a rose bush last year which did okay its first year, but has nearly doubled its size this year.

I had an autumn brilliance serviceberry tree planted last fall, and after the weird winter we'd had, I was worried it wasn't going to make it despite my best efforts. But it bloomed flowers in early spring, there's been significant branch growth, a lot of leaves bursting, and the berries are coming in (still green, however.)

I plan on planting an autumn brilliance serviceberry this coming winter. Going to put it in the back yard with a good view from the window by our recliners. Let me know how you like the berries (if you can beat the birds to them).

I'm hoping I can snag a few before the birds get them all, but I've been told they're pretty quick on that! As it is, I've seen them 'stalking' the tree, waiting for them to get ripe.

Came back from vacation in Jamaica to a front and back yard garden in full bloom-- eyeliner lily trees, yellow, red, and orange asiatic lilies, purple coneflowers and irises, hostas and day lilies, even the potted lemon trees exploded with tiny fruits that I'm hoping will survive to ripen in the fall. It's amazing what 3 days of precipitation and mild weather can do for the garden.

It's still quiet here, but the Viburnum in a corner of the back yard is blooming.

I was at the Mid Coast of Maine last weekend. This is what was blooming there. Lilacs too. Seems about 4 weeks behind us here in CT. I posted a ton of pics from there if anyone is interested.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I'd post a picture of my giant tulip plant. Then life happened. Bo here it is, late:



Someone was in my yard a while ago and said, "That means it needs to be divided."

Perhaps I can do that in the Fall? Originally I had twenty of these beauties along the side of the deck but over the years they've all disappeared but for this one.

And what about the whiter blossoms? Revert to type?
