We've had some much needed rain here in San Antonio recently which has treated us to plenty of blooms.
Bougainvillea adds bright color to the circle garden with very early blooms this year.
They were set down side by side when we brought them out of winter dormancy with the intent to move them to other spots in the garden but I find the orange/magenta contrast fun.
Continuing around the circle garden, Narrowleaf Zinnia mixed with taller native Zexmenia. Native purple prairie verbena in the background.
Gomphrena 'Strawberry Fields' in the foreground and a view of how things are looking this June.
Another native, Gregg's Blue mistflower, beginning to bloom with Teucrium fruticans, purple germander blooms to the left.
Salvia Darcyii, another beautiful Texas native salvia.
Achillea 'Moonshine' behind the Salvia Darcyii.
Bat-faced cuphea against the fence. This is their third spot in the garden trying to keep them in the sunshine and away from the munching deer. I think we've found it now.
Teucrimum canadense, American or Canada Germander which has been just amazing in its growth this year. Deer won't touch it and bees love it so I'll propagate more of these to share and spread all around the garden.
Nepeta 'Walker's Low' which I continue to add for softening the rock edges of the garden.
Peter's Purple Monarda which has been a wonderful surprise since most monarda needs too much water to thrive in my garden. I've heard it really takes over and I'm looking forward to that.
I've added Blackfoot Daisy to a sunny agave bed and like the way it helps soften the look.
Around front the aloe continues to spread out in the gravel garden and has produced several bloom stalks already this season.
