  4. Ah, lovely details form your garden, Rumpy! Does that white flower smell nice? If so it is probably a Gardenia. It looks like one and their scent is intoxicating – I love it! 🙂

  7. If your figs are out and have still that size, that means we will get no fruits this year, right? Our tree has giant leaves …and that’s all :o)

  11. Very impressed with your garden.  Very pretty flowers.  I like lantana, never seen that color before.  I like it.  I have a few little tomatoes and a squash plant, but now blooms on the squash yet.  Have planted lots of tomatoes and a cucumber plant.  Sweet and hot pepper.  Pepper Jelly.  How are the cats?  Rumpy looks happy and healthy, course he always does.   Mom
