Spring Forward

Every day there's a new discovery in the garden. This morning I noticed that one of the mutant bloom stalks on the mountain laurel was loaded with buds.

The freesia I planted last fall are close to blooming (either double whites or double blues)

My redbud tree is attracting its fair share of bees

And every year I mean to drive around the neighborhood with my camera and take photos while all the spring-blooming trees and shrubs and bulbs are making life so beautiful. This is the first time I've actually done it.

Spring has definitely arrived here in Austin - yeah!! I'm coveting a quince...no place sunny enough or large enough but a girl can dream!

That's the salmon pink flowering shrub, right? I wasn't really sure what it was, but it's lovely. And, yes, a girl can always dream...
