What's blooming -and- Some views of new front garden
Several things are blooming now in my garden. I've also included some photos of my new front yard. It was a slope before and essentially useless space that was hard to maintain. Now it's pretty much level and the new wall has given me use of the area. It's very hot and sunny (south side of house) so I've gone with a xeriscape garden. I've had the yucca and some cacti and ice plants, along with the lavender and some of the sempervivums and sedums. I have added more of all of these and some other drought tolerant plants. As time goes by, I'll see how various things do, and add more accordingly.
Hope you enjoy the photos.

Love the foliage!
Althea (Rose of Sharon)
Oak Leaf Hydrangea showing early pink tint.
Hesperaloe parvifolia (Also called "Red Yucca" but not really a yucca)

Sempervivums replanted around a rock in the new front xeriscape garden
View of the new front garden and new walls and steps.
Another view. This will of course need time to fill in and I will be adding plants as I find those that do well here.
