    Colorful flowers whether planted in the ground or blooming in pots add such beauty to our surroundings. :) And I don't know about the rest of you but they bring joy to my heart too. :)

    Yup... Spring is in the air but not around here...
    We are still in the snow possibility season and every night it drops way below freezing...

    Spring will come when it comes and not before up here..
    We NEVER plant anything in the ground before the first week-end in June...

    Awhile back our Landlord cut back all of the bushes, etc. that were getting so tall and leggy around his property. Many of these bushes were Holly and Ligustrium...but this Gardenia was growing nicely and the bush was far enough away from our home that the strong scent of the flowers was not bothering my allergies when he cut it back and I was kind of sad when he did that, but it actually has made the shaping of this Gardenia bush prettier and the flowers on it are plenitful and fragrant. :)

    These Spider plants love blooming forth under the Oak tree and I love seeing them do this. I remember when we it seemed we couldn't get anything to grow well under this tree. Then one day my Honey just starting sticking the babies off the Spider plant into the grown here and they took off growing and never looked back. The cacti family plants seed and grow really well here too. :)

    Stepped outside for a bit of fresh air and found a butterfly had come to visit our lantana. :)
