|California Giants zinnias|
On the 15th of every month garden bloggers around the world join Carol at May Dreams Gardens for Garden Blogger Bloom Day. Not only is it fun to see what is blooming everywhere else in the world, it is sometimes useful in reminding the gardener to check on what is blooming out back.
|Cuphea llavea, bat face cuphea|
Bat face cuphea will always remind me of Annie/Kathy of The Transplantable Rose who first posted a photo of this sweet plant some years ago causing me to hunt around and find one for my very own.
|Helianthus debilis, Italian White sunflower|
This small flowered sunflower is a garden favorite here due to its several month bloom period and ease of cultivation.
|Abutilon Pink Parasol|
The abutilons are grown with other shrubs to provide support for their somewhat gangly growth.
