July Blooms!

Passion Vine
 So much is blooming right now and the bees and butterflies are everywhere!!!
I have been having so much fun walking around snapping photos of everything.  The Passion vine are such neat blooms- we have this one growing along the fence.
Pride of Barbados
 The Pride of Barbados are blooming like crazy- here in the front as well as all over town.  Show stoppers for sure!!!
succulent bloom
 The succulent blooms are hard to beat.  Small blooms but striking. 
Kalanchoe Mother of Millions
 Most people have a love/hate with this little guy- some call him Mother of Thousands, Mother of Millions and Mexican Hat.  All names I have heard for this little Kalanchoe.  The love /hate part comes when you find them growing just about everywhere.....
 The bees have been everywhere and in mass.  It is realy neat- the blooms seem to be moving on their own but at a closer glance, it is just that there are tons of bees on the blooms.  Yea!!!
Dwarf Ruellia
 The Pink Ruellia have been blooming nonstop.  I love these happy masses of blooms. 
Vivero Growers Nursery
This little guy was running around - so cute!!
The Monarchs have been out and about.  The Duranta seem to be a favorite this week of theirs but they pretty much will go to any bloom.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!!!  


  1. Everything looks so beautiful. My granddaughter would love the lizard!! LOL

    Have a great weekend.


    1. Thanks!!!! He is still hanging around the same spot. He's pretty cute.

  2. It's amazing to think we live in the same country. I love seeing what is growing and crawling through your garden. Relieved to see a Monarch too.

    1. I know- I think the same thing when I visit your blog!! We have had a lot of Monarchs passing through. It has been nice.
