quickly turned sunny and pleasant.
So much in fact that the honey bees are out and about..........buzzing and dipping into the watering containers along the grounds.
Even a lizard, who was watching me as I worked along the edge of the pond,
came out to warm itself on the sun baked stones.
Out in the woods, the gardens I have been planning and working on, are sprouting tulips in their containers,
I am hoping that they will all bloom before the deer or rabbits find a way to munch on them.
Speaking of rabbits, I am starting to place small statues of such around
the various shrubs and trees in the wooded gardens. I really wish I could find a salvage yard that has old cement fixtures that I could decorate my gardens with. I don't want new, and I try to stay away from "cute". I don't want bathing elephants with a big smile on them, out in the woods.
I am wanting a more,..........vintage............forgotten.........Gothic
The pansies I planted early in the fall have just filled out the planter box on the patio. I wish I could keep these cheerful blossoms growing all year long! But soon the Texas climate will claim their doom.
I hope this finds all of you staying warm from the storms that are stretching across in your area.
