On the way to the mailbox I noticed that last year's big Duranta has reached 5 feet tall and is blooming. I've been staying in out of the heat. We had rain early in the week, then a trace yesterday, lots of thunder and lightning this afternoon. I ducked out just long enough to get an illustration pic for today.

Rooted pieces of Duranta have endured. One has come into bloom.
Duranta with Melampodium, an annual for hot and dry.
Duranta is wonderful with yellow. Maybe next year I'll have Duranta and Esperanza together.
