Happy flowers...bloom for me please.

Everyday, I can't help but fiddle with a leaf or two or three...  Watching nature is not supposed to be stressful but sometimes I find myself wishing they would grow faster !!! .. ..oh well... I'll learn to switch to nature's time soon.

My jasmine plant  (either the Arabian or Indian variety) is finally blooming.
After trimming and moving it to the morning sun area.. ..I'm doing the happy dance cos it means I'm doing something right.  If you read my previous post you'll know there's a lot of adjustment given wind, sun, facing, heat and space.


Kind of small, I hope you can see the buds.

Added two more sweet flowering plants to the collection..While they are termed 'wild' by some, I don't have wide open spaces so they are not going to be able to grow wild, I'll be happy if they grow and continue to flower in whatever space they are.  I may try a trough if they work out ...

For now I'm keeping them where the morning sun can get them..., I'm still researching these two. Their common names are the Butter Daisy and Tickseed .

Butter Daisy or Melampodium

Melampodium or the Butter Daisy, I think there's a few varieties of this one as well as for the Coreopsis below. I had just turned it inwards, hence you see the proliferation of flowers on the sun facing side. I'm thinking that the leaves are grown much, much bigger too..It must be really happy in this place
. I may need to repot. 

Coreopsis (Lanceleaf) or Tickseed

Your plants are coming along well. I am looking forward to fall when it is cooler and I can move some things around here.

BTW, I dedicated something to you on the Thursday post. I hope you like it:)
