And Then There was Rain!!

Yes, we got rain!  It was wonderful.
Parts of Austin got hail, but I think just about everyone got rain.
Today it is supposed to be a high of 60 and then slowly start creeping back up.
Spring has definitely sprung!

 The Spanish Lavender is blooming and fragrant as ever.
 The Bottlebrush are blooming away.

The China Snow Trees are solid white full of blooms.
Everything is so happy and showing off as if screaming- Look at me!!  Look at me!!
Then you have little Agaves trying to compete doing all they can do to show off next to the blooms- I love these little Squid Agaves- they look perfect in pots with little spillers.

Going to make one of those up today in a little pot.
