Uhmmm. Do y'all remember the Mexico Miniature tomato plant that wasn't supposed to grow much more? Well. It did. As in: it doubled in size! And no new tomatoes set yet. Lots of blooms, no fruit. I may have to take a Q-tip to the problem.
I got one of these plants for my mom when she was in the hospital. They were so pretty, I got one for me too.
Have you ever had a day when you woke up feeling like this?
Yah, me too.
I'd much rather feel like this. (Pinata rose bud)
And a pinata rose open.
The white Mandevilla is blooming profusely. It's actually gone all the way over the top of the bower chair and is drooping on the other side.
This one was resting on a hanging basket. I like the way the light and shadows play across the flower.
OH, and the budelia that was suffering transplant shock earlier seems to have recovered and is blooming again.
This plant has never looked better. You'd never know that it literally was a ball of roots that just felt...alive...enough to stick in a pot and take a chance on. Some gambles pay off.
I'm not sure how, but somehow there seems to be a begonia growing at the base of my ponytail palm. How? Why? Where'd it come from? I don't know. But it's pretty, so it gets to stay.
You can see the ponytail palm next to the disappearing fountain and the pond. If you remember, the ponytail was one of my 25 cent rescues from last year. Humm, that reminds me, I need to go hunting again.
They hyacinth bean vine is blooming at last!
I've still got some seeds from last year, and I'll be collecting more this year. The moonflower is starting to bloom again too.
This grows at the corner of my garage and sidewalk leading to the front door. It started out as a little sprig I stuck in a pot. Oh, there's a pot somewhere under there.
I'm glad I kept all the branches growing.
The Esperanza bush is blooming well. I've seen some hummingbirds visiting it and the Firebush growing next to it.
Pretty little flower faces.
A peekaboo morning glory.
The Gloriosa Rothchildiana tubers are vining, but no new blooms yet. I don't mind, as the foliage means that the tubers will be larger next spring.
