I've tried to grow ornamental oregano a couple of times and it hasn't worked for me. Maybe I should try again. Happy Bloom Day!

You make California look cool. Just lovely, and great photos. We've got roses right now. Almost time for the Annual Rose Viewing. I wish you could visit.

Oh, I love those agapanthus! And the ornamental oregano, which I haven't had luck with for some reason.

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day! :-)

My Agapanthus planted just this year, has finished blooming. I thought it might go all year, but maybe not when new. How beautiful your blooms!

Very lovely. My agapanthus isn't blooming yet. I look forward to its heavenly blue. In the meantime, tropical plumbago is looking quite spry though. Happy Bloom Day dear friend Leslie.~~Dee
