there is something growing, blooming, or almost blooming outside.......
even in this early part of the year.
On one corner, the stock flower I posted about in my last post has gotten over 2 ft high and it's vibrant blossoms fill the air with it's heavy fragrance.
On another corner, the Yaupon Holly still has it's bright red berries.
One corner of the house has a large and very old mesquite tree growing, stretching it's twisted branches up to the sky........... but underneath lies
a beautiful thick patch of Vinca.
It is in full bloom now with sweet lavender flowers and shiny green leaves.
Another corner has a bed full of Larkspur. Thick and green and steadily growing taller until they will be tall stalks of pink, blue, purple, and white flowers. I placed my vintage flower cart in the center of it all.
Never far away from my side is my now constant outdoor companion Homer, who loves to walk around the gardens just as much as I do.
Out in the yard, the Pomegranate tree is budding
and the daffodil patch is starting to bloom
Another bulb that I love is the fragrant Hyacinth
and the cheerful Jonquil
which look wonderful sitting in an old rusted tomato can.
So tell me..........what is awakening in your garden these days?
Has your snow left yet?
I would love to hear!
