Colour My Garden: Pink & Fuchia

Rosa glauca

Our streak of rain-free days has come to an end. It rained Thursday bringing the streak to an end. We matched the previous record of 29 consecutive dry days in May-June. It was nice to hear the rain again. Fortunately it continues to be warm and we have partial sun.

Our garden is mainly a Mediterranean drought tolerant garden. We do not water it much in the summer. Some plants don't do as well and eventually they are moved out or die. There is also not a lot of order. G often plants things just to get them out of containers and into the ground. But there is usually something in bloom.

The blues and yellow continue but we have streak of pink to fuchia to purple blooms now.

The photos are all stunning but I love the one with the hummingbird! Those little creatures never cease to amaze me.

I enjoy looking at your flowers and your garden photos. I grew up on a tropical island and having a lush green garden was something that I took for granted. I miss it so much, after being in the desert for 23 years.
