The blooms of our little Box Elder tree shimmer and wave like a green cascade. (It's a blur because they would never STOP moving in the night breeze)
This perennial morning glory (Impomea indica) is currently on trial. The verdict is still out on whether or not to let it grow on the fence or to stop it before it takes over the garden.
The 'Pride of Mobile' Azaleas enjoyed this past week's 5.50" of rain and are just about bloomed out.
I have many volunteer native Redbud trees and they are indeed the cheeriest harbinger's of Spring.
The star of the show has to be Pittisporum tobira. The hundreds of bloom clusters fill the air with the scent of honey.
It was easy to sneak up on this Red Admiral butterfly. It hardly cared that I was there. Four of them were flitting about playing butterfly games and lapping up nectar.
St. Patrick's Day is coming and these shamrocks are in full bloom to greet the Irish holiday.
Most of my garden is always shady, so it's nice to see these horseherbs and yellow Wood Sorrel blooming between the stones before the trees leaf out.
Finally, I'll show you the latest on my front project. It's 90% complete. It almost looks good enough for one of those gardening magazines. Now if I could just finish pulling the last of those pesky weeds.
Well, that's it. Hope Spring has Sprung in your part of the world or the rain has turned on in Australia's Autumn season. I haven't a clue what happens in South Africa this time of year, but wish you some happy gardening as well.
Happy (Magical) GBBD!
