Spring Into Texas

Winter is really over. It has been raining like crazy here in the Rio Grande Valley and everything is lush and green. And wet.

Our neighbor two doors down has a lovely garden he calls Thorn Thicket. It is a huge attraction for birds and a quiet oasis tucked into his side yard. There is a babbling water feature, a winding path, a swing and benches. When we take Carmella for “walks” she always wants to go there but we don’t let her go in. She is interested in the birds, not the flowers.

This is a small sample of What’s Blooming Now. Hibiscus, cosmos, lovely lilies, sunflowers (!), the legendary Texas bluebonnets and more. It has been a delight to be able to enjoy flowers and hummingbirds all winter long. Being an avid gardener for so long, it is a real pleasure to enjoy different regional seasons. And other people’s efforts.

Gratitude.
