It's vacation time and the Davis garden is at the mercy of the Garden Trainee. Hopefully it is blooming and thriving while we're visiting the Sweet Granddaughter in San Diego. So what's blooming in the auxillary garden? The courtyard is green and lush, the result of the warm, humid coastal weather. Its main bloom time is over but even so the little courtyard has some blooms remaining. Blue marguerite has spread in the triangle bed. The red rose that has shared this spot was unceremoniously ripped out today having never managed to keep its leaves from being eaten by the rose sawfly...those lovely little green caterpillars.
Succulents in pots are still blooming ...and the red ivy geranium that covers the garage wall blooms almost nonstop. When my daughter and son-in-law sent photos of the courtyard after purchasing their condo I couldn't identify the red flowered vine, having never seen a 7 foot tall 8 foot wide geranium...it wasn't until we visited that I could tell them what it was.
At the top of the page are white chrysanthemums foolishly blooming as if to say summer is coming to an end. But I don't believe it...summer is still going strong...at least here in San Diego!
