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.|
|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.|
