My Yard


My yard has been thru an interesting summer so far. Summers here in Costa Mesa CA are usually mild in June and July heating up in August Thru October. this summer was unusually cool in May, June and July. Heating up considerably in August and now September, this has delayed the major growth and blooming of most of my plants. Do not fret they are now in full bloom and weather is holding warm as it usually does in Fall. My Plumerias are now growing and sending new leaves very rapidly as well as my cassia, and delonix regina seedlings. also all my little annuals like marigolds, mums, and portulaca’s are loving the heat and in full bloom. hoping this warmth holds thru october giving my plants the chance to continue to look GREAT!!!! i love Fall its my favorite time of year, when the cool nights lead into warm days, and my favorite annuals come into bloom MUMS!!!! my first entry into the blogging world on GOY, and i love it!!! will keep posting as the yard changes or i head anywhere interesting!!!!!
