Banner blooms

The flowers up there on the banner are not bluebonnets, although one of Bailey's friends thought they were. They're called Angelonia and are similar to Salvia, but I think they're a lot prettier and not as weedy looking as Salvia. The best part is they're perennials, which means I didn't have to do a single bit of coaxing or begging to get them to come back. I don't even think they care that Midland hasn't seen rain since....well actually I can't remember the last time it rained. Anyway, they just popped up and have been growing crazy all spring.

Very pretty! I hope my plants are as well behaved as yours.

I think it rained 8 days ago, since that is what your "Oh, Twit" says. The flowers do look great.

Oh. So that's when it was. :-) I guess when it rains 1/10 inch compared to the 4 inches you Okies get, it's hard to remember.
