Summer is definitely here and plants are blooming and showing off all over the place. The Flame Acanthus, also referred to as the Hummingbird Bush, provides a vibrant show of red blooms that attract hummingbirds. I don't have a photo of them on it, but they have been all over it.
The Peruvian Cereus, Night Blooming Cactus, is bursting with blooms and loaded with fruit. I ate some the other day for the first time- kind of kiwi like, at least to me.
The Hibiscus are showing off with their saucer sized blooms.
The little Augusta Duelberg's are blooming away- I love this photo- the bee is actually sticking his tongue out- didn't even know they had them!!!!
This is a really neat bloom but is incredibly stinky. It is a cactus looking succulent that has these really unique starfish like blooms.
These little guys are showing a lot of color with the heat. In the cooler months they are yellow and as it heats up turn UT orange. Gotta love that!! Hook em'!
