It was storming this morning and dropped 1/2" to 3/4" sized hail all over my garden, pelting the plants and knocking their flowers off. It was still kinda dark out, so I couldn't get a wide view image, but here are some close-ups of the hail:

And to switch the topic to new flower blooms, yesterday the Pomegranate got its first bloom of the season.

I just let it do its thing and it rewards me with these beautiful blooms all season long:
The Mexican Petunia also just started flowering. I have this planted around the pomegranate - this plant spreads like mad, but I really like the flowers so I just try and pull out the ones that spread where I don't want them:
