This "summer's" topsy-turvy weather has confused some of my plants -- my very young wisteria vine thinks it's been getting April showers and has begun to bloom again! I love it, because I always wish the wisteria blooms would last longer in the springtime. My newly-landscaped shade bed in the back has thoroughly enjoyed the rains, and the cooler-loving plants are thriving and got a really good start. And I think I actually heard the sun-loving xeric and native plants breathe a sigh of relief today, as the sun beamed down on them.
