Purple and Gold Rule for Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day

Even in harsh drought, my perennial asters never fail. Just a few drops of rain prompted their annual performance this week.

I’m glad I took a chance last year on a new addition, Indian mallow, Abutilon palmeri.

I’ll admit that sometimes I regret my exuberant passion vine, since it takes over the world. Then, it brings a whirl of butterflies and other insects to fuel up in its flower nectar. Plus, I’ve watched countless new generations, thanks to the leaves that host the larval nursery. Truly, the gift that keeps on giving!
