To see more gardens in bloom go here: May Dream Gardens - June 2012
In the front garden:
The false red yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora) is putting out three bloom spikes!

|White-ish pink flowers that the bird hide in!|
|These are so bright, its hard to take a picture of them!|
|The scent welcomes you to the front garden|
|One of this weekend's chores is to clean the roses!|
|These will bloom all summer....|
|I'm not sure what's wrong with this flower. The other buds look fine.|
Moving to the back garden:
There is more false red yucca:
|This time with seed pods already!|
And some leftover red blooms on the Callistemon viminalis 'Little John'
|I'm surprised these bloomed this year. The leaves are so soft.|
|The red ones are getting ready to bloom too!|
|And there are so many more buds!|
|The purple ones are already done blooming|
|the various shades of purple look nice together|
And I love this sunflower! It's huge, and it seeded itself (I'm assuming from one of the sunflowers in the front yard from last year) in one of the pipes. I'm so glad I recognized the seedling and left it!
|It looks like it has at least 10 buds on this plant!|
The color scheme for the back garden is supposed to be red & yellow with accents of blue, so based on these pictures, the starting point is there! I'm very excited that these flowers are blooming - especially when I remember what this area looked like just a few months ago:
|The very sad before...|
