Even More Garden Blooms

OK, I know I did a non-orchid garden post just a few weeks ago, but the backyard garden has really burst into bloom this month. Dave took some more great pictures, so I couldn’t resist.

On the left is a Gazania flower after a morning watering. On the right is the extraordinary flower from a St John’s Wort plant.

Last year, strawberry plants sprouted in a few flower pots after I had used some compost that still had seeds. They’ve been vigorous growers, and overwintered well enough to start giving us berries in early May. These strawberries should be fully ripe in a couple days. On the right, bright pink trumpet flowers are hummingbird favorites.
