And of course the rain lily, Zephranthes citrina.
The Texas fish hook cactus started to produce flower buds about 6 weeks ago, then halted the bloom cycle. It was waiting for the rain. Today it bloomed.
The blanket flower, Gaillardia always around for Bloom day. Here paired with the ruby crystal grass, Melinis nerviglumis.
There are a number of flowers that are blooming out of season. This unknown day lily seems to have extended its flowering into July.
and this spring blooming columbine continues to flower. It's a topsy turvy year everywhere.
This is the coreopsis that came from the Seattle Fling. It survived the mild winter and just started blooming. It must still be on West coast time.
Hooker's Palafoxia, Palafoxia hookeriana, is a pretty native that self seeds.
Dahlberg daisy, Thymophylla tenuiloba, with its clusters of pretty yellow flowers.
Celosia spicata always manages to find a place to grow.
Gomphrena 'fireworks' along with the spider zinnia, Zinnia tenuiflora.
I did manage to pick up some more plants of the chocolate flower, Berlandiera lyrata, this year and they seem to have settled in well.
and the rest
and a riot of colors gathered together in a vase.
Happy Bloom Day Carol, our host at Maydreams and gardeners wherever you may be.
