Cenizo or Leucophyllum frutescans is sometimes called "barometer bush" because gardening legend says it will predict rain, but there is no rain expected here in the foreseeable future. So in my garden these blooms tell me we had a rain shower two weeks ago this Tuesday. It typically takes about an hour of soaking rain to push them into bloom and I've been eagerly watching for the blooms since then.
These flowers are worth the wait.
It will sometimes bloom in the fall when low clouds gather daily. Either way I'd say it's a pretty sage-y plant.
That's the news from my garden this week. Tomorrow I'll take a look back at the driveway landscaping project and the progress made over the past year.
