You might be thinking, not another garden related post! Where are the other patches of your Crazy Quilt Life? It's just that we are having one of the best Springs here that I can remember, especially for gardening. My life has been mostly outdoors and have taken tons of pictures. This post is heavy with pictures (as usual) and can almost qualify for "Wordless Wednesday". I will soon be living the inside air-conditioning life with other subjects to share.
Rose - Pearl 'D Ore
I have just this one plant and it is in a pot. It is taller than I am but it has been opening a few buds at a time for weeks.
Tropical Blue Pea Vine
This is the first time that this plant survived through the winter with green foliage. It usually has to make a new start from its roots.
This one is basically just a bud, not opened fully.
Florida Dogwood/Mock Orange
"I look upon the pleasure which we take in a garden as one of the most innocent delights in human life."
And I say, Amen.
