Weekend Pleasures

In the garden, the ultimate in weekend pleasantry.
Mexican Sage, Hibiscus, Crotons and Philodendron.  All doing pretty nice this
time of year.  However, the heat has arrived and temps are creeping
into the high eighties. Soon there will be a battle to keep them irrigated.
Our soil is sandy and the water just runs straight through. Missing
one day can be detrimental to the plants. For now, we are thankful
 the garden is still healthy and we are enjoying all that is lovely about it.
I'm still waiting for the Periwinkles to arrive in the nurseries,
they are drought resistant and add such beauty to all of the garden areas.
