Pretty! Seems like the Mexican Firebush was late this year...I just seem to remember it being earlier!

Those brugs are lovely! I'm going to try growing some next year... I love fragrant blooms! Do you have to pamper them? Or are they pretty hardy for you?

The firebush is pretty too!

Those brugs have a mysterious air to them. Love the cowpen daisies.

I'll have cuttings of the some of the brugs to share early next month, as we get ready to haul things in. I have to say..this year was the worst for my brugs. I had spider mites...over and over. 'Then we had grasshoppers chewing on them. I hope next year is better!
The firebush looks better tonight. We were gone this weekend and the front yard sort of "filled out." Looks like a fall garden now!

This is one of my favorites, a purple cuphea. I was afraid it wouldn't come back after the drought and such. But there's a few of them now. What color!

Kerria doesn't photograph well, but it add nice structure to the landscape. Do you have it?

No, I don't. Not sure if I can squeeze another plant in anywhere! But I sure like the bright color.
