Lantana

Looks like tiny daisies, but ten times tougher.
Comes in every color, including 'ham and eggs'. Grows in swampy dirt and desert heat. Pretty flowers, tenacious shrubs, likes the luxury of regular rainfall but doesn't have to have it to thrive.  Tough ladies for the garden and a perennial good addition.

Good luck tomorrow, my friend. A long set of stairs climbed. 
May the landing be a good chance for a deep breath.

Tough, tenacious ladies indeed! Very pretty Ann. ;)

They remind me of the wildflowers that my state seeds in the medians of many of our highways down here. I'm gonna look for some pics and show you!

After I get back from my walk to the beach.

Neat post! I love Lantana...only an annual in our state. Poo.

Dear Momma Fargo,
I love these things, and yes, they do go annual--they never get as big then--but I'm glad you can get them at least!

Thanks for writing in!

Lanatana, climbing jasmine and bacopa are all favorites of mine. They brighten up my day with their delicate strength.

Dear Anon,
I am thinking all these flowers are white--you should have a Moon Garden, what the Victorians used to do for sitting and talking in the yard at night!

Dear All,
The good news is that the landing was there and as I was informed, the Eagle was on it!

And ABOUT DAMN TIME! Things are looking up in corners of the universe.
