Happy GBBD! It's been a while since I've posted, despite having a banner iris spring and hundreds of volunteer bluebonnets I kept meaning to photograph. All this rain has been pretty amazing for the landscape; strangely, it's the sun that's missing (so unlike a typical May in Austin). Artichokes and the verbena bonariensis are the stars in front right now, as the magnolia perfumes the air. In back, the 2-year-old Passion Flower vine has totally taken over the fence and is creeping up through the pocket lawn (be careful what you wish for!).
