Carolina Laurel Cherry closeup. I wish there was a rule that said 'once it's in bloom, no more freezes'.
I'm still not certain we will make it to April without a late freeze here in Houston. We shall see.
Purple lantana has won the show again for this month.
First Azaleas are in bloom. Usually it blooms in early March.
Canna indica~ a species canna good for butterflies.
Agave victoriae-reginae compacta
Pittosporum tobira is budding out.
Canna indica 'Red Stripes' with our hens. This is funny; every time I stop to take a closeup of a plant, the hens run to see what food I'm dropping for them! That's why they are in this photo.
The Holly fern is leafing out with its beautiful fronds.
The silvery foliage of Buddliea davidii 'Nanho Purple'. I'm really excited about this plant and hope it likes Houston. I give it a 50/50 chance since it is actually for colder zones.
This dandelion rosette is stunning against the colorful gravel backdrop. Should I keep it for a while?
Hey, don't dandelion greens taste pretty good?
A striking display of chickweed and pesky oxalis. Here chickens! Dinner is ready.
And finally a touch of class. I potted up some hair sedge, gave it a nice haircut, and put it in a classy piece of pottery.
I might open a new business; haircuts for hair sedge. It was actually quite fun.
Thanks to all for stopping by this month. Spring is one week closer.
