Talk about Spring Has Sprung! We have had temps in the 80’s for a week, with no relief in sight.
(There are rumors of rain soon, to wash the pollen off of our world. )
Even the plants are totally surprised at what is happening with the weather. Did I mention the pollen count?…it’s SO high, you would sneeze just from being told the number….
Here are some pics of our patio plants……just look at the the different shades of green….it is so amazing, that we just had to share with you.
We “rescued” these lenten roses from a sidewalk crack in an old city park about 10 years ago, when they were no more than 2 tiny leaves on a stem…Had no idea they would not only survive, but actually thrive!
Hope you enjoy the view up close of these purple flowers. They’re on the shrub in front of the gargoyle, and you barely notice them – until very close up.
The oregano is quickly outgrowing its container…must use it soon….
Our blue birds are back, building a “home” for their future fledglings. Very exciting to see them return. Will watch them raise their babies as the hardest working parents in the neighborhood! Never any rest for them once those little ones hatch. Hopefully, there will be pictures to share in late Spring / early Summer. Wish them luck!
Bloomin stuff will be next…iris, gardenia, canna lily just to name a few.
