March 2012 desert bluebells Phacelia campanularia

Desert bluebells (Phacelia campanularia) blooming in my garden. This easy annual plant provides masses of bright blue flowers in late winter and early spring. It self-sows (self-plants) too, with seed sitting dormant all summer and resprouting when temperatures cool off again in autumn. Wilson the tennis ball tucked in to show how large the blooms are. Eat your heart out, Lobelia, hah! :)

Thanks, Barbara!  This should be a good autumn-sown spring flower for you, too.  Take care!

"LOL my fish do this when its spawning time, the first full moon in summer. I hear loud splashing, and think one of the dogs has fallen. The fish push one and other out of the water to try to get to the fish laying eggs, they are very rough with one…"
