I don't know if it's because of the unusually long and cold winter we had, or if it was because I couldn't sing or dance this spring so gardening was my major creative outlet, but I have been enjoying the gardens more than usual this year. Here are a few things that have been blooming lately:
Hibiscus and phlox - Except for Osmocote, I don't usually use anything artificial on the gardens. However, small caterpillars and beetles have been decimating the hibiscus leaves so I finally bought and used Neem last week.
A small hibiscus (or hibiscus relative) - this one is very healthy
Daisies and phlox
Asiatic lily and bee balm (the lily is what made me decide to take pictures of the garden!)
