One of the miniature roses in the front door bed continues to put out blooms but for the most part the roses have not been as happy this year as is typical. I think they just haven't gotten enough heat.
Lavandula pinnata buchii adds a nice touch of blue to the bed surrounding one of the banksia arbor posts and has long flower stems that move gently in the breeze. It blooms almost year round since it lives next to the potted meyer lemon and therefore benefits from the patio lights I hang for warmth in the winter.
This sweet aloe is blooming in one of the hanging potted succulent pots in the side yard. I love the delicate blooms juxtaposed with the starkness of the aloe plant itself.
Other plants blooming in Davis today include:
Salvia May Night
Salvis Blue Hills
Salvia Dancing Dolls
Salvia Victoria Blue
Rosa Flower Girl
