The photo above was taken on trip to wine country. I guess I was stopping to....tie my shoe and got a faceful of roses.
Here's whats in bloom in my San Francisco garden: An elegant pink hibiscus... ...Mexican Sage Eggplant blossoming... ...Last Sunflower this season.
This final one is not a flower bloom...I found it as a cutting from a scraggly plant in a diner; it was only a few leaves then, maybe 2" long. I put it in water to root it, potted it up, fed it my worm poo tea of course, and a few months later it took off with the beauty of a bloom. The underside of her leaves are a dark gem-like purple. I've even begun propagating her own rootable offshoots!
