More summer plant love


Here's a beautiful Garrya (Silk Tassel) in flower. I've never seen one actually flowering before! What a treat. Must be all the rain we've been getting!









And the grapes, oh the grapes! Nowhere near ripe, and I'll probably be away in NM when they are ripe, so the birds will get these, but the vines are heavy with fruit this year! Beautiful blessing of summer moisture!



Here's a sweet heaven scented agave flower stalk that beckoned from afar and asked me to hike up a steep hill to visit.












A flowering wild geranium!










And flowering dogbane! Apocynum spp.
