What's blooming: spring colors

The wildflowers are covering the roadways throughout Texas, and abundant blooms have popped up everywhere in our gardens at home. Just one step out our door and everything is awash in the colors of spring.

Alstroemeria; White Autumn Sage; Colombine in purple, crimson, and white.

The splendid fragrance and flowering blossoms of our Wisteria is about finished, and now, the vines have begun to leaf out, creating a perfectly shaded spot for relaxation and entertaining.

I didn't photograph the Wisteria in bloom this year because I have dozens upon dozens of photos already like the one below from 2011.

But, if you would like to see a couple of my previous posts on our experience with growing Wisteria. You can read all about them in posts entitled: "Knock some scents into me" and "Social climbers".

Happy gardening!
