First Roses and flowers of the year.

You wanna know the one of the greatest things about flowers?  They will bloom sometimes, despite you.
Azaleas have been going pretty strong

Not sure what this purple flower vine thing growing up the mexican heather.  Not sure if I like it or not.  Mexican heather will hopefully come back.

I found this real weird.  There are three fuschia colored azaleas growing on the same bush as the these whitest ones.

Rose garden is start to come back.

Knockouts actually were the first bloomers, but greenhouse is coming in second.


Sunny knockout

More knockouts

Camellias are finishing up

Greenhouse finally got vacated

Tulip trees are ending their blooms

As are the tulips

I don't know what this is, but it's pretty.

Lillies are strong but so are all the weeds.

Wisteria is blooming

Conferderate Jasmine has been untied yet.  We are gonna till the tail shortly and grade the dirt I think.

I am worried about snakes living in the frame and pondering what to do about it.

That purple vine stuff is Vetch. It is a weed and has big black seeds that will come up everywhere.

The fuchsia blooms on your light colored azaleas is what is called a 'sport' -- azaleas do that. Your light colored one is a sport of a darker pink.

Every day brings new surprises now. I don't know what to tell you about snakes -- they go where there's food.
