My friend Jill has been having Garden Parties for almost a month now, but I keep missing them.
I was determined to attend this week, though, because even though the wild wildflowers of Spring have mellowed, there's still plenty of color.
So grab a bottle of water (it's hot out there) and let's go for a walk.
I'll show you what's blooming in my garden.
(Forgive me if I don't know the names of all of them! I'm headed to work and will tag them later!)
Yucca blossoms...delicate white bells.
(Nothing yucky about them! Sorry...couldn't resist.)
My front yard, full of Mexican hats and Indian blankets. Lots of diversity!
There are fields of Mexican hats right now.
They'll last all summer, rain or drought.
Cactus are blooming, although lately the deer (or something) are eating the blossoms before the bees can get to them.
The one below was taken last month.
This is a tiny little cactus that hugs the ground along my favorite walking path.
It's easy to overlook.
I'll try to get a photo of it fully bloomed...if I can beat the deer to it.
Yellow is the color of the season, for sure.
My miniature rose bush is blooming. Still just a single bud, but that's okay. I'm just grateful it's still alive!
It's survival of the fittest around here.
Hope you enjoyed the walk!

And I hope you have a beautiful Sunday!
May all your weeds be wildflowers!
