Oxblood lilies are tapering off
But we still have some fresh ones each day. Garlic chives have gone to seed. Newly with us this season are spiderwort and pink oxalis. Turk's caps, lantana, and four o'clocks have been refreshed, thanks to the slightly cooler weather and the bounteous recent rains. There are a few new serrano peppers. Hyacinth beans are beginning to bloom. Morning glories, Bright Lights cosmos, and milkweeds have been refreshed and are producing more flowers. Two days ago, we saw a half-dozen monarch butterflies.
