Even though it's been dry, the days are shorter and a little cooler than August. The plants can tell the Autumnal Equinox is near. Plants that have refused to bloom during the searing summer temps are putting on buds.
|Clerodendron 'Musical Notes'|
|Clerodendron 'Musical Notes'- This plant usually blooms off and on all Summer with bright white flowers which resemble musical notes... hence the name.|
New leaves are showing up on stressed basil plants
|Basil, showing new growth|
|Stressed out Comfrey with new growth showing in the leaf litter|
and even my comfrey which is a mere shadow of its Spring Time self is perking up.
With a little more rain, who knows, maybe the Passion Vine and Queen's Wreath on my fence line will perk up. It's been a very long and hot summer here in Texas, but as with all things, this, too, will change.
Until Next Time,
