May Showers Bring June Flowers

2013-6-1 Cactus garden end of drive 1

WHEW! I’ve been boxing paintings to ship and preparing new canvases the last couple of days. So I just thought I’d share a little of our garden with you today. We had almost 3 inches of rain at the end of May and now we’re reaping the rewards. Our cacti are happy campers! The daisy like yellow flowers are called “Green Thread” because of their long, thin stems.

Even the Hedgehog Cactus in our mailbox planter has wonderful pink blossoms. The small pink flowers are Drummond Phlox, we have Ms. Mockingbird to thank for planting them.

Paul and Nancy, some of our collectors gave us this pot. We love the combination of Petunias, Angelonia and Apricot Gaillardia.
