The Swallowtail have been out in mass numbers all week. They are all over the Mexican Flame Vines, the Mountain Laurels, the Dianthus in particular it seems. They are so neat and seem HUGE this year- maybe it has just been so long since I have seen them, but they seem really large.
The Spanish Daggers are blooming- such a pretty soft bloom for such an appropriately named plant... the dagger in it's name is no exaggeration.....
The Erythrina I have posted before but it is still just stunning and deserving of another shot.
The Horse Cripplers are blooming- such a pretty little pink flower for such a "mean" cactus!
The Grandma's Yellow Roses are blooming away- I like the vibrant yellow of these.
The bees are everywhere working everything they see in sight- love it!
My little Agave 'Blue Glow' pot is rockin' and rollin' along.
Just a few random shots of the week I thought I'd share. The weather here has been nuts- earlier in the week we had days in the high 80's and this weekend and tonight, mornings of low 30's. You just never know- just have to roll with it- all part of living in Texas.
