In the Garden

Scaveola and Argyranthemum "Primrose"

 Finally, a week of nice, dry weather! We made a quick trip to Michigan to bring our son home from college so I missed spending time working in the yard last weekend, but am trying to catch up this week. The garden centers are full of temptations and I've been anxious to start digging and trying out some of the planting combinations I've seen in various garden magazines. Here are some of my favorite flowering plants:
Calibrachoa "Superbells Red"   
Pentas "Butterfly Deep Pink"    
I aim for plants that will do well throughout our hot, dry summer. Our deck faces east and I love to have my coffee outside in the morning sitting among the plants and my little concrete critters.
