some of my summer flowers in a desert yard. These do take quite a bit of water and time to grow. First summer bulbs - peacock orchids, shell flowers and glads. I have one yellow lilly bulb that does great each year.
Morning glories, a zucchini blossom, some sedum (a succulent grown cover I grow in a pot). Lots of sunflowers. Note the bumblebee on one and a butterfly on the last pics.
