Also enjoying the break in the heat

The self-sown violas in pots are still very happy. So are the cyclamens. So are the pink oxalis plants, all blooming profusely. The four o'clocks are coming on strong, although without flowers yet, or course; they're just shooting up like beanstalks. There are still rosebuds, although no flowers yet. All the morning glories and moonflowers have germinated, but something's eating them, perhaps those small grasshoppers, some a fresh green and others a light tan.

I think my four o'clocks (the wild hot pink ones) have grown three feet in three weeks. The ones coming back from the fleshy tubers grow fastest and I'm amazed how many newly sprouted seedlings are up too.

We have a lot of volunteers, also. The most amazing one shot up over a foot tall overnight, right in the center of a houseplant in a pot. We've tried and tried other varieties of four o'clocks, but year after year the ones that succeed are the ones that have always been here and their offspring, probably from Lone Star Seeds long, long ago.
