Blooms galore!

The sky's dark, and more rain's on the way. Thank you, Lord! I decided I'd go outside and shoot some photos before everything gets wet and soggy.

Trailing lantanas and salvias....beautiful!!
Annual asters (Symphyotrichum subulatum)
Mexican bush sage
'Indigo Spires' salvia
Salvias salvias salvias

I heard a noise, something talking to me, while I was shooting. I looked up, and at first I thought the squirrel was climbing down to visit me. But it didn't.

Gray scrub sage and 'Henry Duelberg' salvia
Salvia, green santolina, four-nerve daisy, lemon verbena, mealycup sage
Turk's cap and mistflower
