Today is the 15th of the month, so I am participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day at MAY DREAMS GARDENS.

Here's what's blooming this month at the farmhouse.

Rose Campion that have reseeded and spread underneath the row of crape myrtles on the side of the yard.

Ok, I know these are weeds! Its extremely dry here and the grass is basically dead. The grass hasn't been mowed due to the dry weather, so the dandelion flowers are blooming. I grabbed the camera and took this picture right before the lawnmower cut them down. Its a pretty picture, even if it is weeds!

These are twilight primroses, if I am interpreting the pictures in the books correctly. This is another plant that has grown due to the grass not being mowed because of dry weather. There are more growing under the crape myrtles, so I plan to try to move some of them before they get cut down.


Crimson Mandevilla


Perennial Purple Salvia

We have those primroses, we called them buttercups as kids. We have the lantana and salvia, but we call the salvia, Texas Sage.

Wow, that is some dry lawn. It's nice though to see the flowers come through. Thanks for joining in for bloom day!

You have lots of pretty flowers there. I have a lot of the rose campion at my house, but didn't know what to call it. Looking at your pictures, I don't see any neighbors... just lots of farm land. Do you have any "close by" neighbors? Me and hubby wish we lived way out in the country, with no one on either side of us!

She's Here! Victoria!

Its been an exciting week! Victoria arrived on Monday and I kept her brother for 3 days. Only bad thing is that today I am home from work ...
