|Freesia laxa aka Lapeirousia laxa aka Anomotheca laxa aka False Freesia|
|Narcissus 'Grand Soleil d'Or'|
|I call this Okra Mallow. Abelmoschus spp. (A. moschatus, I think)|
|Laura Bush Petunia|
Today's entry was relatively benign in comparison: I noted first blooms on Grand Soleil d'Or and queried why I planted that next to a Salvia macrophylla 'Cherry Chief', which is still blooming and creates quite the lurid color combination. The Toadflax in that area are tiny seedlings or their blooms might serve to lessen the visual pain inflicted on my eyeballs. I'm adding a note now: move the Salvia!
don't we have a big difference to the temperatures and the weather in compare to the same time last year. Last year we had to be afraid of losing plants due to several nights with freezing temperatures I had to store most of my plants several times in our garage to keep them from freezing and this year the gardens start blooming early.
I sure like this year better. :)
Thanks for posting pictures of the first blooms in your garden.
