called the Algerita Berry.
Now the blooms have faded and the bees have buzzed away............
and sweet berries in the vibrant color of red are hanging in clusters, waiting for the birds and what ever wildlife to come along to eat them. Yes, I pick them as I walk along with Sophie. They are full of seed just like a blackberry, but so good!
I planted a young pomegranate tree last year, in the middle of the harshest drought and hot wind ever.
It survived and is now in full bloom! I just love the way pomegranates look..........don't you?
It seems that every tree and bush is budding and blooming
and no matter how many times I see this through the years..........I simply love it!
It's as if every tree has pulled out it's favorite beaded necklace and has cast it on.
As most of you know, I love to grow large gardens of zinnias. The photo above is from 2010 garden.
Last year no zinnias could be grown because of the drought and harsh weather.
This year I have planted large zinnia gardens once again, and they are in the process of sprouting and growing! I am so looking forward to seeing their colorful blossoms. In the photo above these are zinnias I am experimenting with in the "bag gardening method." They have sprouted and are growing quickly. They are mixed with Mountain Garland...........a new flower I have not raised before.
I also am planting one area with a giant "white" zinnia this year. I used to never care for white flowers, but have found them to be so wonderful in making up the color scheme of a garden.
How about you?
Any wild berries in your area?
What colors do you prefer in your flower gardens?
I would love to hear!
