    A native Texas plant, lantana horrida, can survive anything. The only care it needs is to be cut down to the ground every other year. If not, it will take over the county!
    We have one in a flower bed, that was cut down last fall. Here it is in all it's horrida beauty!

    Loggie—very, very nice rose.

    Gosh Jane— I had no idea that those plants would become so large. They are annuals here because of the weather. I really like the flowers of this plant.

    The first dahlia flower complete with ants and brown ends on the petals, almost perfect. 2EEDA9AE-2F0A-45E8-B13F-0712BDE5C97B.jpeg

    Dust from the Sahara desert is blowing across Texas and contiguous states. This is last night's sunset. Kind of the Sahara to share, but we have enough dust of our very own!

    Lovely rose, Lantana and Dahlia! None of those blooming here yet. The Meconopsis are blooming, and to my delight both my purple ones decided to honour me with blooms this year. I traded for the lightest one (M. Hensol Violet) since mine died a few years ago and bought the darkest one (foliage like M. x Lingholm, no idea what the mix is) at an online auction:

    Stunning Meconopsis, Droopy. Those water droplets really enhance the effect.
    That is a magnificent sunset foto, Jane.

    There is nothing that I could say about your roses that would be adequate, but the Verbene’s. Oh my, aren’t they the bees’s knees. Mine are just beginning.

    Logan, you really have a "touch" for roses. They are superb!
    The verbena is beautiful too, but roses touch my heart.

    Thank you both Sjeord and Marlingardener, hubby prunes them in March, i put rose food on the soil and mulch them. Later in the summer some do get black spot but it doesn't affect them apart from losing the affected leaves but they grow back.
