March Bloom Day

First, the blooms:


The mountain laurels in the front yard are in full swing.

The color on the autumn sage is great, but it needs to be pruned back.

The lantana's also in need of a drastic pruning, but the edges are starting to bloom.

Rosemary's got the same flowers it's had the past few months

Just moved the potted kolanchoe outside last week

Redbud

The remaining broccoli plants all have flowers...end of an era

First strawberry flower of this year

Pear blossom petals among the lettuce

Pear tree overhang from the neighbor's yard

Random tree or shrub in the fence line

And now the buds:

Soon to be evening primrose

Shallot buds

One of the few freesia plants to survive the freezes (the bulbs are 5 years old)

The dreaded sticky leaf buds of the cottonwood, soon to be brought in the house by shoes and kitty paws.

And view more gardens around the country at May Dreams Gardens.

I love your blooms and am familiar with many of them. I do love the Texas Mountain Laurel and their delicious fragrance.

I like your assortment, and really find your edibles a great addition to the mix. The pear petals snowing on the red lettuce is a great effect!

Oh, my, such lovely blooms. And by the way, I'm "waiting for plumeria," too. My one plant made it through the winter and is now growing again. Yippee!
