Welcome to page sixty-eight of a journey through the year 2002 in my garden.
First Week of September  

These first flowers are garlic chives, their primary virtue being that they bloom now when few other flowers are -- in my garden, anyway.

There are other flowers that thrive in the hot weather, though. The second picture is one -- the hyacinth vine growing on the fence at the back of the garden.

Next are the cypress vine. Their miniature flowers are no less lovely because of their size - but they could be easily overlooked if they bloomed in May or June. The annual lantana is next.

Surprise lilies are pictured last. Actually they are a hardy amaryllis and very closely related to the naked ladies that bloomed a couple of weeks ago. I love the coloration of this variety. When they first open they have a lot of blue and purple in them, which fades to pink as the bloom ages.
