Old Faithfuls

Black and Blue Salvia guaranitica.

Salvia coccinea

Black Eyed Susan

Butterfly Weed

Gulf Coast Penstemon

These plants are the backbone of my garden.  I can count on them every year. Many have been transplanted from my former house nearly 20 years ago and others are passalongs.  They have faithfully grown and multiplied for years and should continue to do so.

 


Fall Color

Happy Fall!  Many are posting photos of colorful leaves.

The leaves here will not change for a long time.

Instead, our Fall color comes from blooming plants that have woke up from their summer “sleep”, when it was just too hot to make a flower.

We don’t have flaming foliage, so these flaming tropicals will have to do.
