It's Almost June?

First of all, Happy Memorial Day to everyone!  Thank you to all that have served and are serving!

dwarf greek myrtle bloom
I can't believe it is almost June.  Where does the time go??? 
 I have not had a lot of time to post so I thought I would post a few pics of things I have snapped lately that I thought were pretty.  Hope you enjoy!!!  
greggs mistflower
 The bees have been busy - they seem to love the Greggs Mistflower.  The butterflies do as well, but the bees have been all over it!
Texas Betony
The hummingbirds never disappoint.  They have been quite content all week with the Texas Betony.  
 Mexican Flame Vine
 The Mexican Flame Vine is bursting with blooms.  
I have always loved this vine- such bright happy flowers.
Vivero Growers Nursery
The hummingbirds are all over the place this week and I for one couldn't be happier.  Speaking of birds at the nursery…..  this little girl showed up the other day.  She was so sweet.  She must have been lost, she just appeared and walked around and hung out all day but was not there the next.  Hope she made it home.
Vivero Growers Nursery
Looks like Austin is going to get some rain this week- woo hoo!!!!!
Hope everyone has/had a safe and wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Little of This, Little of That

Color Guard Yucca bloom
 The 'Color Guard' Yucca is starting to bloom- I love the blooms on the plants- always a fun surprise.  
Erythrina Coral Bean
 The Coral Bean are loaded with blooms making the hummingbirds very very happy.
 The Yarrow are in full bloom- everything is emerging and waking up if not woken up and starting to bloom.  My favorite time of year. 
 The caterpillars are abundant- I am constantly amazed at the markings on them.  So beautiful!!!
Goldenball Leadtree
 The Goldenball lead trees are blooming like mad.  Such a simple small flower that delivers such a big pop of color. 
Passion Vine
 The Passion Vines are blooming- I can't help it- had to post a photo.  Just too neat to pass up. (I posted a photo on the last post but that was a while ago ).
Lions Tail
 The Lion's Tail are blooming- probably my favorite bloom- I don't know- hard to pick but definitely a top ten for me.  How do you not love that bloom?????
Anacacho Orchid
Everything is rocking along - hopefully in your neck of the woods as well.  I know some people had snow not that long ago…. the butterflies, bees and birds are everywhere at the nursery and I love it.  We have another little bunny that has taken up residence under the office.  He's so sweet.  I haven't gotten a photo of him yet but it's early yet….I keep stalking him and the hummingbirds.  Soon.  Soon I will have photos…...
