Purple Plum Tree
 the Purple Plums....
Gopher Plant
 the Gopher Plants...
Pedlianthus
 the Pedlianthus, this one is a little more rare than your typical one, as noted most predominatly by the blooms.  Aside from the blooms the plants themselves are very similar but this one is more tropical/cold sensitive and the blooms are different.  I love it!
Acanthus Mollis
 The Acanthus are getting ready to bloom- such a unique bloom stalk. 
Globe Mallow
 The Globe Mallow are blooming away, tried and true favorite of mine.
hummingbird moth
And last but not least, the Salvia are a big hit this week with bees, butterflies and the Hummingbird Months alike.  Hope everyone enjoyed the photos.  Please visit May Dreams Gardens to see what is blooming in different gardens from all over!!  Thanks for hosting!

February GBBD 2017

Happy February GBBD 2017!  I say it all the time but where does the time go?
Aloe marlothii
The weather here has been just plain crazy.  Hot, cold, freezing, meeting all kinds of records for coldest then hottest days of the year on record- just typical Texas weather.... 
The Aloe marlothii is blooming which to me is always a magnificent bloom spike. 
Echeveria
 The echeveria are enjoying the cooler temperatures and showing off all their colors.
Agave Blue Glow
 The Agave 'Blue Glow' is using the sunshine to show off it's beautiful edges.

January Garden Blogger Bloom Day Post

I can not believe it is time for the January Garden Blogger Bloom Day Post!  Where does the time go? 
I will post a few photos of things I have taken pictures of lately.  Hope you enjoy. 
The Aloes are blooming away like crazy.
 The Kalanchoes, though not a bloom, I thought looked neat so I took a photo.
 Another Aloe bloom- this is the 'Grassy Lassie'- one of my favorites of the Aloes.
 Who doesn't love an Echeveria bloom?
 The Pines are looking beautiful in the sunlight.
The Arbutus have the most beautiful blooms- so intricate.  Little pink showers of blooms.   
It is January 2017.  I can almost not believe it.  Short but sweet post- hope you enjoyed! Be sure to visit May Dreams Gardens to see all the gardens all over!!
