Garden Bloggers Bloom Day (May 2010)

I've said goodbye to the succulent flowers, the toadflax, and the peas, and in their place we have Rockrose (Pavonia lasiopetala):
Blanket Flower (Gaillardia aristata):

and Mexican Hat (Ratibida columnaris):

Not Pictured: Cucumber, Tomato, Basil, Parsley, Oregano, Horse Herb, Confederate Jasmine, Tropical Milkweed, Purple Trailing Lantana, and Purple Heart.

About to bloom: Dallas Red Lantana, Cedar Sage, Coral Honeysuckle, Watermelon and Greg's Mistflower.

I grow the other species of Pavonia here... P. hastata... love em' - the hotter it gets the more they bloom. A rare quality in Texas.

great pics!

Claude: At least I assume it's that species (the plant was a pass-a-long from a fellow garden blogger)
