Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

Across the country today, garden bloggers will go outside, shoot photos of what's blooming in their own garden, then post it on their blogs. I found out thanks to my good friend, Trisha Campbell, who gave me an article on the subject that was published last week in the Austin American-Statesman.

Here in Central Texas, we're struggling with a merciless drought. We've had very little rain for nearly a year now. So our Wildscape looks dreadful. But I did manage to find a few blooms on one of our salvias in the front yard. So that's my contribution to today's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.

Check out other posts for today's event at May Dreams Gardens. We're number 42!

Here I count on all you gardeners that live in the south to provide me with dreams of summer. You are getting hit harder than we are. For us it is just cold.

That's better than nothing, and my Salvia greggiis aren't doing a thing. Next month, I think, will be a different story. Don't you?

I also have just ONE bloom out of all my dozens of salvia greggii. This drought has been a killer! I will now perform a rain dance and hope for some rain....

I hope you all do get rain this year. As a gardener, I fear drought more than any other thing.

Thanks for sharing your bloom with us!
