Stepped outside to capture some shots of flowers and hopefully butterflies on my Copper Canyon Daisies, but I didn’t spy any! I did find lots of bees and other insects enjoying the Mistflowers. We had an early freeze this week, but it wasn’t long enough to damage these flowers! Turks Cap is also still in bloom. An extra special treat was discovering 2 yellow roses. One in bloom and the other still a rosebud.
The following 4 photos were taken with my iPhone. They have a dreamy quality to them that I like.
Blooming Lantana – April 2013
A yellow rosebud sharing spring’s possibilities.
This is Salvia Lyrata. I love its green foliage with the streaks of purple. It purple flowers are very elegant. Too bad it only blooms in the spring!
I love the color of this rose and it has a wonderful fragrance.
Spring has really shown up! Some tulips I planted in pots were very beautiful for a few days. My roses are putting on a spectacular show. The yellow coral honeysuckle has also bloomed! I spied the first caterpillar of the spring on some fennel a few days ago. Our newest addition to our yard is our double composting bins. We are having fun adding coffee grounds, egg shells and fruit and vegetable peels to the bins along with our fall leaves and spring trimmings!
