speaking of palms, its the also the magical time of the year when the trachycarpus start blooming. The men of the species bloom first, followed by the females.
Camelia are almost done but this one is always late. I know what you're thinking, it IS a lot of pink.
This is my favourite pink flower of them all in the garden ... lewisia NOID.
I wish I could say that with all this sunshine and warmth the hesperaloes are flowering ... but second to that would be the fact that I purchased this flowering hesperaloe parviflora 'yellow' the other day at the nursery. I hope my other ones decide to flower as well. Would they have their blooms starting already?
Opuntia are starting to send out new growth. This one is undoubtably happy about this heat wave.
And to kick off the gardening season I purchased this nice aloe polyphylla. It was a bargain and I had a gift certificate!
There are few plants as cool.
And I love how it glows in the afternoon sunlight!
That's all for now. I'm glad to be back in the garden. But it's time to fire up the BBQ! Enjoy the sunshine!
