It is warming up here in Austin. It has been in the high 70's and low to mid 80's this week. Everything is really responding to the warmer days too- things are budded up and blooming, butterflies and bees are flying around and birds are chirping- it is wonderful!!
The Gopher Plants have been a big hit with both the bees and butterflies all week.
The Dyckia are blooming- I love how such a spiky plant throws off such a nice dainty bloom.
The Wisteria are budded up and getting ready to bloom- I LOVE the smell of Wisteria- reminds me of when I was little; we had it growing all along the fence line by the pool.
The Mountain Laurels are still blooming, some say grape soda, I think it smells like Purple Kool-Aid, same smell I guess, I just haven't had grape soda.
The Japanese Maples are all leafed out and stunning.
The Mexican Sycamores are budded up and ready to leaf out.
The Bulbine have been loaded with bees all week.
And last but not least, the Mystic Spires are starting to bloom in the front bed. A sure sign spring is here. Please visit May Dreams Gardens and see what is blooming all over!!
Hope you have a great GBBD!!!
