I made the error of putting my first set of seedlings in the garden too early. Hard to say what killed more--unbearable heat, sudden deluge, or bugs... I'll keep these veg (mostly cruciferous) in a protected area for another couple weeks before I trust them to Mother Earth... Right now, just tapping my foot, waiting for some cool weather, hoping it rains a bit more often, and enjoying the butterflies. This time of year, the real star in my garden is my chaya plant, the white waxy blooms of which are favorites with the winged and buzzing sorts.
Aside from my chaya, about the only thing blooming right now are: Hamelia patens, cosmos, milkweed, dune sunflowers (Helianthus debilis), yellow lantana, jatropha, zinnia (Zahara mix), white Mexican petunia (Ruellia), and blue salvias. How about your place?
