The magnolia and the miniature magnolia are blooming, as are the lilies, oleanders and gardenias. Lizards are plentiful, much to the cats delight. We’ve had enough rain I haven’t had to water this week.
I’m still seeing scattered hummingbirds at various bushes and at the feeders.
I was speaking with some people at a cookout and found out tomatoes don’t set flowers ( fruit ) once nighttime temperatures get below 75′ ( July + Aug ). So get them in early if you are planting them.
I also found out that salvias are being smoked for their hallucinogenic properties. Who knew? One of the women at the garden club was giving a talk on salvias this month so she had been to purchase several at the nursery. The nursery wanted to know if she had been smoking them?
