Summer is here! I got home from camping 6 hours ago and am still trying to get everything done for the weekend! When I don’t take photos in the morning, the blooms are pretty sunburned by noon. And we had wind today. And single digit humidity. So, for today there were 5 new blooms.
Wild Horses is a favorite, dependable bloomer. I have had her 3 years and she puts on quite a show. Can you see the wild horses in her pattern?
So, Chaco Canyon bloomed when we returned from this same camping adventure last year. I love her stripes!
A brand new face for this year is Navajo Rodeo. Waiting 3 years to see some of these has taken patience. She reminds me of Talon, but redder. I am sure they are related.
Ruby Spider is one of my oldest blooms, and always a favorite. She is huge, and oh so red!
And little Happy Returns is back. She is such a delicate little yellow trumpet.
And there is the long roster (with photos) of all or our blooms from 6/18 through today:
So far, that makes 36 that have bloomed in the yard. Of 170-something. 21% or so of my cultivators have bloomed so far. Tomorrow, it looks like more new faces will join the count!
