Garden “first”

Here are some firsts from the new garden. I just love seeing the new flowers come into the garden. Texas hibiscus is supposed to be a profuse flowerer. Purple coneflower often has flowers into the Fall. These photos were taken on September 8, 2012, about 2.5 months after these plants were put into the ground.
