Zinnias, Melampodium and a tattered Swallowtail.
Julia Child. Carefree Delight has a handful of blooms, too.
Most Zinnias turned out in shades of yellow. Love this one.
Pentas finally started good bloom, here with Persian Shield.
Cannas are everywhere.
Tecoma stans; Esperanza if you will.
Melampodium stands up to drought. Sweet Zinnia.
Red Pentas with a Zinnia.
Red Pentas in the greenhouse had 11 little caterpillars on it,
it was nearly eaten when I found it.
I think of Zinnias like this one as 'Sunset Shades'
The weather is dry and some things are wilting. They will have to survive without my help as I can't drag hoses and all hoses were stored so He-Who-Mows can mow while I can't move heavy things. Survival of the fittest.
So glad to be back In the Garden. It is so hard to resist an impulse to bend over and give a weed a hard yank.
