We had a few rain showers, enough to make the grass head out

Chartreuse alternanthera contrasts with
Verbena on a stick, self planted.
These change little from year to year. I've found what
works and am reluctant to change. Alternanthera
cuttings must be saved over the winter, the rest comes

Lantana montevidensis, mostly lavender, a white in the middle.
In early spring when the lantana is dormant, there are
daffodils along the stones underneath.
Daylilies are resting behind Purple Heart.
Daturas haven't reached full size yet.
There is melampodium at the end.
Alternanthera, Purple Heart and Periwinkle
cannot be beaten for summer.
Crape myrtle trees are always dependable.
Ninety degrees at noon when I was taking pics; 'feels like 107' according to the weather report.
