Annual Lobelia with Sedum 'Angelina' and Dichondra argentea
The last Sunday of Spring 2021. Beauty to recall on a dog day in Summer.
Fuchsia with Tillandsia Somnians. T. somnians is one of a small number of species in the genus Tillandsia that are terrestrial. A few years ago I'd hole-sawed a cup in the top of the rock and tried to grow small succulents in the cup. None succeeded. T. somnians, on the other hand, has thrived. Photobomb by T. usneoides on the extreme right hand side.
I observed over time that T. usneoides ("Spanish Moss") was only happy in the very lowest branches of the Acer, where humidity rising from the soil below kept it moist enough to survive. While T. xerographica is much more xeric, some humidity has appeared to help.
Can onions be beautiful? We're pleased with this year's home-grown crop, of which these are part:
Fresh home-grown figs in a couple of months:
Rose 'Belinda's Dream' with Geranium 'Rozanne' and Tritelia at its base:
And Hummer, drinking from the urn's wet surface. Right after the camera shutter clicked, two more Hummers appeared and a vicious battle ensued.
Hope your weekend was lovely!
