What the cooler weather has brought
There are now flowers on one rose plant, chile plants, four o'clocks, cosmos, milkweed, hyacinth beans, Turk's caps, and lantana. The rain certainly helped. After beginning slowly, the show of oxblood lilies (rhodophila bifidis) may be the best ever. There are white rain lilies and stalks of small pink schoolhouse/oxblood lily flowers from something bought on sale at Wheatsville on sale. Perhaps this will be a year when lycoris radiata shows itself.
