This Morning in the Garden

The sun this morning in the smoke-filled sky. This was at 7 AM when I was in the garden watering.

Lillies of the Nile (agapanthus) These originally came from plants from Grandma Alice's house, and my parents house (the one I grew up in). They were in our yard at the bay area house for years. Before putting our house up for sale 8 years ago, we divided some of the plants and potted some to take with us to our new home. And here they are.

One of the hibicus we have left in the garden. They are hard for us to keep going here. There used to be quite a few in the garden, and this is the last survior. That is not completely true; Bob and Linda recently gave us a beautiful orange one. It's just lovely.
The crepe myrtles are starting to bloom along the inside fence line of the yard. The ones on the street side of the house are in bloom as well.
