Spring is definitely here, so I snapped a few photos of the garden thus far. Its still coming along.
Here is the Mexican Buckeye, which my uncle, Glenn, planted for me back in 2005, right after we put the pool in.
It has some lovely pink flowers when the leaves first start blooming each spring, and this year I managed to get out with the camera while they were there.
My rose garden is in the front of the house. I've been watching them start to bud, and I;ve been fearful that with the close to 100 buds that are there, they wouldn't open until I was off on my trip. But happily, one opened up today.
And it looks like at least one other isn't too far behind.
Our herb garden in the back, in the nice planter Carl built:
And a close-up on my beloved Lavender, which is blooming so prettily right now.
And underneath the Texas Red Oak we planted two years ago, I added several flowers last summer which I am happy to report are coming back without any damage from the frost.
