Thanks Josephine, they are some of my favorites. I bought a lime green duranta and one of the new orange Esperanza plants this spring and I can't wait tiLl next year when they will add to the show. I am already thrilled the the foliage on the duranta, it is a lovely counterpoint to my dark green asparagus .
My green zinnias continue to rock along, although they don't want to stand up but prefer to sprawl. And the purple porter weed is covered with butterflies, another outstanding plant that has never stopped blooming since I planted it this spring.

yes you are correct. Texas Tarragon.

Valsflowers
Clematis grow really good in my area.
Yes Daffodils in November. It is a variety called Grand Soleil (or something like that). I had them for years. They bloom November and December and I use them as cut flowers.
Their fragrance in the house is amazing.

I also forgot to take pictures of my Turks Cup. They are making seed pods and I love to eat them.
You can see the red pods in this picture below.

Milkweed for the Monarch butterflies.
In the last two pictures you can see the seed pods exploded and they are seeds hanging ...
Every year I let my Milkweed to reseed itself. In my garden is not invasive because the butterfly find the plants to feed their caterpillars.
It is a win win.

That reddish orange/salmon colored one? With a name like that, I'd expect browns.

yes I have 10 peas !! ah ah
Actually I was gone for more than a month and a half and my mother-in-law was supposed to water the peas only, since everything else is on an automatic soaker hose schedule ..
She didn't water ... off course ... a few plants survived only ... but I have peas ... so I will try again next year

morganc
you are talking about the "leaf" fennel. This is the bulb kind fennel and I wish it will grow every where because it is so good.
