Rambling Around the Yard

Nothing really inspired me to blog today, so I just took a walk around the yard with the camera to see what was up.
The ox blood lilies are in full bloom. I always forget how many I have. They are also showing up on their own in some surprising places where I am pretty sure I did not plant them.

I like this container of hen and chicks with escheveria.

Four o'clocks are doing fine. For some reason the pink blooms opened this afternoon, but the yellow stayed shut. Maybe the yellow will bloom tomorrow.

This is an oddity. For some reason, the mock orange decided to put out a single bloom this fall. The normal bloom time for this shrub is early spring. I wish you could smell this flower. Garden bloggers need a scratch and sniff option on our side bars.
