Well this was supposed to be posted on Tuesday, but seeing as I was taking care of a sick toddler, my only chance to write was during nap time.
The first (while not in my garden but too good not to post) is this albino Mountain Laurel.
It still smelled amazing!
The purple Oxalis blooms, I mentioned in my Foliage Follow-up post. So delicate, and so awesome in the super shady spaces of the garden!
I’ve had this color combo on my Pinterest board for some time after seeing a post about it on Digging. I finally found the perfect color pot from Hill Country Water Gardens Nursery booth at the Austin Home and Garden show with all their pots 40% off! Even the new stuff!
And I stumbled upon this Anemone going to seed right before a giant storm hit. Not a bloom per say, but still so pretty.
This lovely native, I believe is Texas Plains Indian Breadroot. Its leaves look similar to a Bluebonnet, but it shoots straight up and the blooms are a deep purple.
And one of my favorites, that I got at Home Depot of all places almost 5 years ago, the Blue Elf aloe, blooming under the cedars (Ashe junipers).
And I leave you with our most treasured of blooms here in Texas. The Bluebonnet and his pollinator friend.
Even ginger got in on smelling the blooms!
Thanks again to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting such a fun gardening meme!
