Bloom day - February 15, 2012

Spring is coming fast and furious to my garden this year! We have only had a few freezing nights all year and all the plants are about 2 weeks ahead of schedule. I finished trimming up the garden this last week, so bring on Spring!

Flowers already blooming:

Southern Grape Hyacinth:

Speaking of grape, the Texas Mt. laurel is beginning to bloom. The air is filling with that wonderful grape soda scent:

I'm really excited to see these this year as last year all the blooms froze off in our deep freeze. Not this year!:

The coral honeysuckle is blooming:


Texas Star Jonquil:

Tulip Sylvestris. I really do love the nodding yellow heads of this one:

And Texas Quince:


Happy Bloom day everyone!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's been awhile since my last post. Many changes have been taking place and life has been a bit stressful. Enough of that for now, however. I really just want to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!

Roses and Agave in the garden:

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! :)
