Weather here is hot and muggy, with wild weather predicted for today. Sweet alyssum, torenia, blue lobelia, petunias, million bells, portulaca, ice flowers, clover, shasta daisies, echinacea, and yellow coneflower are blooming. Mulberries and black raspberries are done. Blackberries and apples have green fruit, and so does the plum tree for the first time. The barrel garden has been replaced and planted! I also saw a hummingbird sipping from my million bells this past week.
