Before the rains started last week, things were sprouting all over the yard. This is the lovely black elephant ear plant that Kay got me for my birthday, plus some iris and some phlox.
Amber hasn’t discovered the other hyacinths in the yard yet, so she has ONLY eaten one…. Also some iris and a rose bush.
This hydrangea is sprouting in one of the two brick planters we have to demolish soon.
The rose bush on the left is the Joseph’s Coat climbing rose bush that Kay gave me for my birthday. We’re hoping it will climb up the wisteria truck next to it. The plant on the right is a camellia that will soon have blooms.
Some of our twice-blooming iris!

Surrounded by redbud branches….
This is one of the 6 or 8 redbuds we have in the yard.
As we stay in the house, or run through the rain, it’s nice to have so many reminders that wonderful weather is on its way.
