Changes in the gardens after 2 days of rain...


Cubanelle Pepper

Teracotta planter was planted with Sweet Basil seeds, and the black pots are planted with Milkweed seeds.

This Ferocactus latispinus' spines have also turned a dark cranberry color in the last week or so...isn't it pretty???

I have very little of this Sedum Rubrotinctum, but the color changes nearly year-round...so sweet!

Buds on the Mammillaria ready to burst!!!

The Thimble Cactus is looking quite stately with it's new black spines pointing straight up from it's mass of white stars (something new)... I LOVE this cactus.

The ever changing Kalanchoe daigremontianum...the one I feel so happy with all year long...with it's changing leaf colors...now with some new ones for me to enjoy...kind of bronze on the outer leaves and a lovely blue inside...is it Tiffany Blue? No...but more of a Robins Egg Blue...just gorgeous!!!

And, lastly, my variegated Jasmine on the fence is flowering and smells devine!!! How much better could it get around here??? Today I am thankful for my garden areas and the space to have them in.

Oh how neat, Julie... You have so many neat things blooming.... I love them all, but that Thimble Cactus is awesome.

We have a Jamine in our yard ---but ours is a Confederate Jasmine... SO PRETTY... But it hasn't even thought about blooming yet...

Send some rain up this way. We REALLY need it.

Hugs,
Betsy

Isn't it amazing what rain can do for the garden. You can water faithfully when your plants need it but they respond to Mother Natures watering best.

Hi Julie, Your veggie garden looks fabulous. : ) A few of my mammillarias have flower buds on them too. The flowers are so pretty on them.
A very happy birthday to Dozzey too.
Happy gardening.
