Our Visitors Depart For Home...

Our visitors depart for home, and now there's time for the garden again, after all the laundry and vacuuming and dishwashing is done. I went out briefly simply to look--it's been a while.  The pair of Lagerstroemia 'Dynamite' look great.

The warm flower color agrees with the tips of the nearby Calothamnus and the Aloe flowers.

Here they were just over a year ago.  I was about to begin digging out the Cercis trees, which the 'Dynamite' twins replaced.

 The biggest new development in the garden were the Yuccas.  Not only was the first 'Bright Star' in near peak bloom...

...another 'Bright Star' is also developing a flower stem:

The 'Margaritaville' Yucca are also sending up flower stems.  That's an Urginea maritima flower in the foreground.

Our visitors were a lot of fun, but it's lovely to be back outside.


  1. All so pretty, those Dynamites are living up to their name. It's all come a long way from a year ago. I just love yucca flowers. Beautiful!

  2. Of course it is a pleasure to have visitors, i love it too talking,dining and so on, but our gardens are always calling us, as if we cannot live without them. Happy gardening again!

  3. The Dynamite Crapemyrtles look great, such a pretty red, and really good growth for just one year. The Yuccas also look great. I see a few in bloom here when I drive around. I'm sure your garden was probably missing you even more than you were missing it.;-)

  4. Yucca flowers are beautiful. I am still waiting for my first and having to start again with many in the new garden.

  5. Great photos, the red Dynamite flowers are so beautiful and I love the Bright Star yucca with its wonderful variegated foliage and beautiful flowers.
