This year the choices are few and far between here in Galveston. But there are a few drought/heat tolerant plants that seem to be surviving and thriving across the island. I'm talking about Esperanza and Pride of Barbados. Mine are still looking pretty amazing, despite the torture they've been through this summer.
Rather than droning on about the virtues of these 2 plants, I thought I'd show them in our garden.
Wish I could have caught some of the hummingbird action. They love these plants. But those guys are way to fast to catch with my iphone!!!
