Scenes From the Yellow House

We have counted five varieties of lantana in the yard at the yellow house.  A pale lavender is about to bloom maybe next week. The butterflies, humming birds, and bees seem to feast on it. There is yellow, orange and yellow, pale orange with white and my favorite red with orange. Finally the pale lavender which we cannot fully appreciate yet.

The red color, is positioned on our corner lot by the road for cars riding by to enjoy. We have no mosquitoes at this house and have heard that lantana wards them off. If this is true we certainly have enough to keep them away. Two of our specimens by the deck are taller than me!

I realize The C-Cat has nothing to do with lantana but I had to scoot this image of his sly face in anyhoo:-}

  1. I was just looking at that orange and yellow combo lantana at Home Depot yesterday. I think I'll have to go back and get it today. It's an annual plant up here in Ohio, so it'll never get really huge like your's :(.

  2. We used to have lantana when we lived in California. I don't have it here - hmmm - I hate mosquitoes, perhaps I should get some!
