More Spring

I really need to improve my picture taking skills.  Many of the closeups are fuzzy and the long shots don't seem to capture what I want to share.  Put that on my to-do list.

Here are a few more pics of spring in my garden.

The side front by the driveway.  A lone Blackfoot daisy is peeking out from under the bluebonnets at the lower right.

This plant is a date palm grown by me from a seed from a box of Costco Medjool dates.  About  5 years old.

My favorite knock-out rose, the Rainbow is hard to find.  Sorry for the blurry pic.

David Austin rose, name lost.

More bluebonnets, sharing with the neighbor's yard.

Belinda's Dream

The variegated lemon is loaded with buds and blooms..

This, folks, is a peony!!!  In Central Texas believe it or not.  I have about 4 buds.  Picked up the bare root plant at Home Depot a few years ago.


There are 2 surprises in this field but they are hard to see in this pic.

The first surprise, a lone red poppy.

The second surprise, a lone golden California poppy.

These last few pictures are some samples of the 'work' I need to do.  It is really not work to me.  I love every minute I spend in my garden and look forward to this 'work'.  What in the world would I do if my garden did not need 'work'?

The long granite pathway  on the west side.

The 'needs mowing' area around the bench in back.

The pathways in my kitchen garden.  BUT I just can't pull up the bluebonnets, can I.

Need to clean out, organize, and add new flooring to the greenhouse.  I stole some of the bricks to use in the re-build of my mailbox that got demolished a few months ago.
