There is so much blooming right now- it is wonderful. The 'Moy Grande' Hibiscus are stunning with their MASSIVE blooms.
The butterflies are swarming the Flame Acanthus- which is known to be a hummingbird attractor. I can't disagree with that claim, the hummers have been all over it- everyone sharing nicely.
The Pride of Barbados are going strong- they are such a beautiful pop of color. We have a few planted along the fence line and they are so showy!!!
The bees have been everywhere- here one is crawling up inside an Agapanthus bloom- the next shot of you couldn't even see him- he was all the way up in there. Ha ha!
I love this shot of the hummingbird coming in for a landing on the Mexican Bird of Paradise. I have said it before- it is hard to make a statement on what they like the best- they are all over everything!!!
The Tecomaria, Cape Honeysuckle is like a neon orange glow - brilliant color!!!
Everything just seems really happy. Here are a few things that have been showing off this past week. Hope everyone is having a great summer and if you are anywhere near the Austin area, let's hope that rain comes in as promised!!!
