I'm back with a post for the final day of A Week of Flowers, sponsored by Cathy of Words and Herbs to brighten the gloomy days many in the Northern Hemisphere face as winter sets in. I shared February blooms on Day 2 and April blooms on Day 4 so I've chosen some of my favorite May flowers to end the week-long celebration.
|This is variegated Echium candicans 'Star of Madeira'. Echium of all kinds do well in coastal Southern California's Mediterranean climate. In fact, some literally grow as weeds here.|
Visit Words and Herbs to find other posts on this theme. Thank you Cathy for launching this effort! Even my part of the world gets a bit gloomy at this time of year. In fact, we're expecting mostly gray skies through Thursday this week but the silver lining is a chance of rain today and Thursday, which would be wonderful. Southern California is very, very dry and we need something approaching "normal" rain this season if we want to see plentiful flowers in the coming spring.
