A post done in great haste, because six yards of mulch are waiting out on the street:
Callistemon (Melaleuca) 'Slim' covered with flowers and flopped over because of that:
Clematis 'The President'
The garden Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) are just starting to flower This one is coming up in the middle of a Salvia:
Many more flowers soon--several dozen
Salvia 'Amistad' all hacked to the ground, springing forth once again
The first sweet pea flowers, any day now:
One area mulched. Mulch makes each plant stand out. Mulch: the frame on the Mona Lisa, the tilt in the Tower of Pisa...
Can't get a truly satisfactory photo of Leucadendron 'Pom Pom'. Yet. I'll keep trying. Nice, though, with an 'Ebony' series Lagerstroemia in the background:
Salvia 'Love and Wishes' visits with Graptoveria 'Fred Ives':
California poppy, Mexican Tulip Poppy, and Verbena 'de la Mina' for touches of daintiness
Salvia 'Waverly', hacked to the ground and moved a couple of months ago bounced right back. A Salvia that gets far too big, but it discreetly feeds the female and juvenile Hummingbirds while the aggressive males fight over Grevillea 'Superb'. Waverly considers its shadow:
Many more flowers, but mulch to move, beds to mulch. Happy April!
