After two inches of rain in the past few weeks (!) my garden is smiling every day now. It seems the worst is over from the critters eating everything that blooms.
First of all, we just fledged our second set of Rocky Mountain Blue Bird chicks this week!
My Russian Sage and Purple Hissup are in full bloom now…
And falling under the believe-it-or-not category, my Red Riding Hood Penstemon is blooming again after only being planted this May!
Everything else is smiling brightly, even the cholla cacti I transplanted here a couple years ago!
They’re not blooming yet, but I look forward to seeing them bloom next July!
My Portulacas are even smiling through their protective cage top. Be careful or the critters will climb up there and eat you!
And then there are our native Navajo sunflowers, volunteering again this July!
