As the weather warms and the days lengthen, we are blessed my more green leaves and more blooms. It is such a grand season. The spring rains have been ample and thankfully not excessive. Today is Good Friday which the locals say is the date to begin planting the tender types. I have already set out some tomatoes. I couldn’t wait.
The paver project has taken another step forward. It is on hold this week as we have travelled to Texas to see my daughter and family in Fort Worth where we will spend Easter.
Here are my pics for this week.
The first is another of daffodils. This is Barrett Browning on the left and a Poet’s Narcissus on the right. There still are a few other daffodils appearing.
The second is a spiderwort. These are native to Alabama and do reseed in the yard but their beauty prevents me from saying that they are a nuisance.
Third is the next step in the paver project. The circle of bricks has been installed. The rains this week will clean off the sand and a few new plants will complete the inner area.
The fourth is a flag iris. They are near the front parking area and certainly add a splash of bright color.
The next is another native that the iNaturalist app identifies as in the buttercup family. It is pretty with the silvery leaves.
Finally, here are a couple from the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. They are a grouping of beautiful California poppies and a flowering dogwood.
From the beautiful SouthEast USA and Beautiful Alabama, wishing you Happy Easter!
Don’t forget the Propagator. He is the inspiration for this blog.
