Full of promise.....!


Even though the first day of spring was cloudy there was no rain. Taking advantage of this to get reacquainted with my back garden I was delighted to discover buds galore! I bonsai'ed le petit azalea above, amazingly it's been in the same shallow pot for over twenty years, it blooms twice a year, sometimes three, it's a plant that keeps on giving..it feels the love :) The bambino bougainvillea below flowered all through winter, can't ask for more.. the yellow climber to the right and the bush below (not sure of their names) are pregnant with promise, the white star shaped flowers smell divine when in full bloom. I wonder what this week will bring.. a kitchen for me hopefully, I won't hold  my breath though :) Happy Monday, only five more days until the weekend, take care.....

  2. What a beautiful garden. And it sounds the best sort too... a garden where we can mark the months and seasons by what will bloom next.

    You are a delight:-)

  12. Those pinks and red could overwhelm the eyes. I know nothing about gardening except dirt and water. Your patch is lush.

  16. Promising spring!!! But then again it hasn't been very cold, has it?! :-)

    So if you are in spring, how come autumn only begins in three weeks up here?

  27. We don't have all these amazing colors right now. It's green and lovely, but not with too many colors. I think it's very nice right now where you live. Fall is about to hit our city soon! I cannot wait. It's like a second spring here in the desert.
