Sunny Border in early May

The Sunny Front Border has really come to life in the last week or so. The weather has been hot and dry - no rain for at least 2 weeks and temps in the low 90's, which is hot for us during May. 
The Mandevilla are reaching up the wall, by June they will be there. 
The Sea Holly - blue glitter - is really coming into its own this year. The photo doesn't do it justice - it shines in a metallic blue color. i like it - I'm going to have to buy some more from Wayside Gardens. At the bottom you can see my Y shaped stick used to prop up the leaning tower of Sea Holly. Plant supports need to be added to my list of things needed at Lowe's. 
The heat has not made the Shasta Daisies mad. They are just busting at the seams to get started. It is sprinkling this morning, so things are happy.


  1. I'm sure rain and cool weather are on the way.

  2. thanks greggo - i'm not so sure - this is usually our rainy season
