The big news for the plants this weekend was the windy weather in Albuquerque:

Most of the plants in my container gardens are growing at a harsh angle now, thanks to the wind gusts:

Oh dear – my poor Gaillardias!

They’ve been taking a beating from the wind!

The Penstemon and the Gazania flowers are faring better:

I love the blue Penstemons. Here they are in the afternoon light:

It’s going to stay windy for probably another month. Hopefully the plants can hang on in the meantime.

The little Allium azureum flowers are doing well:

I’m mostly posting these pics for Tom at Midwestern Jungle, as he expressed interest in them a few weeks ago. He’s got good taste – they’re adorable!

Tom thinks he lives in the windy city. But I would argue that Chicago should have some competition for that title. Haha, Albuquerque’s coming for you, Chicago!

I’ll be back tomorrow, hope to see you here.
