One Hundred Percent

That's how many of our exterior plants are in bloom. Every single one! Okay, so there are only three (all remaining from the old house), but that's still huge in my book.

There are the two pomegranate bushes that I've mentioned before:







And our althea (a kind of hibiscus), which went from tiny buds to a handful of lavender flowers overnight:







It's amazing that these three plants have survived for more than two years without irrigation (although we did take milk jugs of water over to the althea during the hottest part of summer the first year). We're having a sprinkler system installed, but I hope we won't have to use it much after everything gets established.
