Warm weather and recent rain (half-inch yesterday, 2.5" from last week, not to mention the 120 gallons of supplemental watering I did using water from the rain barrels) have set off a growth spurt in the garden and polished everything to a clean green.
Tibouchina urvilleana seems particularly delighted.
And believe it or not, Rosa 'Honey Bouquet' has a dozen buds on it!
The mystery bulb I was having problems identifying on Bloom Day is a Nerine. Duh!
Spring wildflower seedlings are coming up everywhere
The LBBs still visit every day.
In fact they come several times a day.
The tomato plants are gone, but I'm leaving up the cages for visitors who need a perch.
There are some beautiful green leaves
But the buckeye's bare branches attest to the fact that this is not spring.
And the grape leaves are very clear about it.
