  1. That rain lily looks similar to my pink ones (which are also blooming). If so, the bulb will multiply into a nice little thicket of growth. I really enjoy their intense pink color (as most tend to be white or pale pink).

  2. Awesome! Those jalapeno blooms look familiar... we have 4 jalapeno plants that survived the winter and actually I dont think I'm had to buy any jalas at the grocery store in at least a year!

  4. Thanks Scott. I put that sponge in the tray to hep the bees get a drink. I like how it matches with the terracotta and contrasts with the purple.
