It's the Plants, Darling

A Day Late and a Bloom Short

Bloom Day in California–OK, so I’m a little late:

Dahlias2

A few scraggly dahlias are left–this in spite of the fact that I almost never watered them…

Salviaconfertiflora2

My beloved Salvia confertiflora, which I am propagating right now in hopes of having much more next year….

Fuchsia

And this crazy old fuchsia that seems to never STOP blooming.

    Funny what a difference a day makes. Yesterday my dwarf, laceleaf Japanese maple was green. Today its turning red. Tomorrow, it’ll probably be bare…how quickly the seasons change!

    Thank you, thank you for the ID on that Salvia! I bought one, unlabeled, at a farmers’ market in New Orleans, pre-Katrina. It struggled along here for a while and then went roots up. At least now I know what to look for!
