The Caldwell Pink rose and the Indian Princess hibiscus bloomed this week, for the first time after, uh, I guess I can call it Winter.
You can also see the first time the Indian Princess ever bloomed, back in 2010. It was a selection I took home after attending a Space City Hibiscus club show earlier that year.
It’s the fifth week in the garden, and I’ve added photos to the Gardening 2012 album. This week, I transplanted from seedling trays on the porch the following varieties into the garden: Redcrest cosmos, other cosmos from last year, lilac zinnias, lavender zinnias, craig’s grande jalapeno peppers, pepperoncini peppers and chocolate peppers.
Here are some of my favorite shots.

What is the datura? I’ve never heard of it before. The flower looks like delicate, white linen. Does it have a scent? Your pictures are so lovely!
Annette, I got the seed for my datura at Enchanted Forest, it was a seed pack from Botanical Interests, see: http://www.botanicalinterests.com/products/view/1179/Datura-Angel-s-Trumpet-Seed/ … It has a nice scent and the flowers usually open late in the day and stay open until the middle of the next day. It’s quite a prolific re-seeder! I have a lot of little seedlings that I’ve plucked from parts of the garden where I did not want it, if you’re interested, let me know!
