A patch of beauty

Thanks to some goodish rains and hot, but somewhat lower than average, temperatures, the Paco Command Center is looking lush this year.

I like mimosa trees; they provide a tropical accent, and fill the air with a sweet aroma.

The black-eyed Susans are in bloom, and competing with the crepe myrtle for attention.

And I'm really diggin' this mahogany-colored sunflower.

I have a brown thumb. recently upgraded from a black thumb. My successes to date have been a so-so lawn, and two callicarpa americana plants that miraculously haven't died. This is spite of a nasty winter, and summer temperatures of 95 to 105 F (it's cooler today, around 90 F).

C'mon, Jeff! I bet your place looks like the National Botanical Garden.
