again with the plants....
I'd never heard of rain lilies before stumbling across them online a few years ago. I did a bit of research and bought some off ebay, crossing my fingers they would do well here. The first year, they just barely hung on and I really didn't think they'd come back.
But...each year they come back a little stronger. They only bloom after a hard rain. Even sprinklers can't fool them...must be something with the pressure dropping ...?
The pink is the weakest of all and has fewer blooms than the others but still blooms with regularity...
I love these white ones...
But my heart just sings when these yellow ones bloom!
and bun-bun loves them too!
at look at the moon flowers...they are so lovely! I started these from seed... I hope they over winter well like the morning glories...
Look at this teeny tiny lizard! You can't tell because the leaf he is on is about 7" across but he is really tiny...so stinkin' cute!
I found this birdhouse at Tuesday Morning and weatherproofed it. I put it with the morning glory and after just one day, the vines have already started climbing all over it...I can't wait til it is just peeking out.
so...how does YOUR garden grow?
