Blooms at the Nursery

Well, I missed GBBD, sorry, so thought I'd share the blooms at the nursery as of late.  
Hope you enjoy!!  
 The Althea are blooming like crazy.
 The butterflies are everywhere- sometimes I feel like my Instagram account is a butterfly watch.
 The Cereus are always neat I think- this one has three blooms on it.  
 I love the Greveillea 'Peaches and Cream' - such an unusual bloom.
Palo Verde Desert Museum
 The Palo Verde trees are always pretty to me even without blooms- I love the green bark.
 This was a first for me- two on one.  I posted this on Facebook and a customer posted one on hers as well- guess it isn't that rare but I'd never seen it!
Pride of Barbados
 The Pride of Barbados equals summer in Austin to me.  Love these blooms!
Sticks of Fire
 The 'Sticks of Fire' are always fun- they change colors in the winter but are equally as impressive in the summer.
And last but not least, a Tecoma, this is the 'Lydia' which is a bit more compact and softer yellow.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!
