Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

I hesitated to post this, or at least to join the linky party at May Dreams Gardens, because I thought that was only for blogs dedicated to gardening. And maybe that is the intent. But after seeing several links from bloggers like me who cover a lot of ground, I decided to join. so here is what is blooming in my garden today.

Esperanza (Tecoma stans), a Texas native

Texas Hummingbird Mint (Agastache cana), an Ellis County native.  Just planted this spring and already blooming.

Tropical water lily Dauben (Nymphaea x 'Dauben'), a viviparous lily.  Bought just a couple of weeks ago.

A new tank just for Dauben.

Ditch lily (Hemerocallis fulva)

Yellow ginger (Hedychium flavescens)

Mealy blue sage (Salvia farinacea), a Texas native

Mexican Poinsettia (Euphorbia cyathophora), a Texas native
Eastern purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), 

New gold lantana (Lantana x hybrida 'New Gold')

Chaste tree (Vitex agnus-castus), non-native and now on the Texas invasives list.

Confetti lantana (Lantana camara), non-native and now on the Texas invasives list

Red yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora), a Texas native - languishing after all our rain

It is nice to see garden in other climates as you mentioned on my blog. Thanks for visiting. I rellay lvoe your little water feature - I have long wanted a water feature and water lillies would be awesome. I have wondered about mosquitoes though - is it true that if you add a few little fish that you dont get mosquitoes?

Lovely blooms. Lantanas are my favorite, here in India many varieties grow like weeds
