A Late GBBD Post!

Happy late GBBD April 2016!  
Hard to believe it is already April.  We have had a crazy spring- early, incredible weather, and as of late lots and lots of rain.  Here are some photos of what has been blooming as of late!  Hope you enjoy!
Cactus bloom
The cactus blooms never disappoint.

  1. Gorgeous color! I love the lizard photo too. Spring is only just starting in Maine with bulbs.

    1. He was so cute- I got a REALLY cute picture of a frog I will post as well. He was so tiny. You will have blooms soon enough and we will be in 105 degree days... haha

  2. I was late this month, too. The April weather is weird everywhere ... flooding in Houston, snow in the midwest, and summer temps here in the California desert. Love the colors you have for pollinators, my first batch of butterflies have already laid their eggs, and the caterpillars are about ready to morph. And I'm seeing 2nd and 3rd generation lady beetles already, along with ripe squash and bushels of flowers. See you next month! Victoria @ www.gardencooktravel.com

    1. The weather is just totally out there. One day this next that. Crazy. I love all the wildlife and transformations- we are getting a bunch of new butterflies and birds this week which is fun and ladybugs everywhere.
