Jerry Friedman Favorite Flowers and yard decor (93* d) RE: Favorite Flowers and yard decor 03 May 99

I seem to be obsessed with my flowers these days. Here in New Mexico we don't grow a lot of the flowers people have been mentioning (some of which I miss), but I do have long-spurred yellow columbines from the Arizona mountains.

The bulbs are over except for the odd tulip and wood hyacinth, and the late-spring peak of blue flax, penstemons, bearded iris (did you know it's a desert classic?), and those columbines is getting started. And the Salvia greggii that bloomed until the middle of last December is blooming again! And my jimsonweeds have come back! (Actually, they might be better called sacred datura, Datura wrightii syn. meteloides.) No white flower you guys can grow can top the daturas' flowers--too bad they open in the evening and wither in mid-morning, so you mostly see them in the dark.

But I could go on and on...
