I have not been in the garden very much lately, with jury duty and other recent activities. The garden hasn't missed me.
The German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) I grew from seed and planted everywhere have started to bloom.
So too has the mock orange (Philadelphus lewisii). So far, I'm not impressed with the fragrance. Considering the overall non-utility of his plant during the rest of the year, it might have to go.
The Fuchsia dangling flowers above it, however, stays.
Spring is pretty much over, as the Clarkia bottae will attest.
Attesting even more strongly, Madia elegans. Is it very idiosyncratic of me to love this native tarweed so much? It blooms all summer, in to late fall. The fragrance is incredible.
I can't wait for the fall asters to start flowering...
Some late-planted Triteleia laxa.
Senecio cristobalensis' flowers are nothing to get excited about (or even take a picture of), but the plant has certain other features that make it worthy.
Next year I want more Watsonia.
Some wider views.
