The showy primroses are still putting on quite a...show, with larkspur joining in for contrast.

I've only got the one California poppy blooming, but it makes me happy to see every day.

This shrub volunteered in front of my rain barrel, conveniently screening it, so I never got around to pulling it out. No blooms but this year it's produced berries of some sort.

mulberry maybe?

Amy said...

Thanks! And a mulberry...it does sort of look like a possibility, though the berries never get dark.

Your garden is wonderful - and I'm not saying that just because we have many plants in common! Love the larkspur. That's one I don't have and need to get.

Amy said...

I thought the same thing about your delphiniums! And thank you.

Hi Amy - you have a very colorful April-in-Texas garden going on - nice mix of plants, too. What a delicate dianthus variety!

I think Katina is right - we had both red and white mulberries in Illinois.

I didn't know white mulberries existed! A cardinal and a grackle were fighting over them this morning.

Love the larkspur/primrose combo! Happy GBBD.
