1st rose The first rose of the season.

container garden april 17 Our "container garden" has houseplants, herbs, and flowers that have been through the winter
We have Bay leaf, thyme, sage, rosemary, mint, geraniums both floral and scented, hibiscus, and a croton. Not in the picture is parsley, oregano and lavender. The ginger hasn't sprouted yet, and I've sown the bed with a mixture of radishes, cucumbers, zinnia & marigolds. There are various weeds allowed to flower, and our alternative ground cover is quartz crystal fragments we've dug up in Hot Springs. DH also has a row of citrus trees in containers around the corner, and I've been laying in various summer bulbs. We'll post them when they get along.
this is a test post, I'm still editing

nothing new today, no sun, weather can't decide what to do, so have a few rays of sunshine from earlier. I'll try not to duplicate anything I've posted before.

With the arrival of a new season, I've got one outdoor flower, a mum, and pictures of the plants moved indoors.



David has harvested nearly a dozen small lemons and limes, and the geranium has bigger blooms than it did outside.
It's time to bring in, cover up and bed down anything left outside, including any critters.

Nothing much new, we've been having tropical afternoon showers this summer. I walk to the barn under clear skies, then turn around and see this.


Have some random commercial landscaping begonias and some of my sister-in-law's flowers

Still crape myrtle season. Went to Mom's house over the weekend and took pictures of hers.




Yes, the big one was planted inside the back deck.
wynnsfolly: (yaler rose)
Not a lot new happened this week, but it is crape myrtle season. Despite the storms, everywhere you go here in central Arkansas, you see them at their best. Unfortunately, I can't take pictures while driving.
so you get a pic from my drive.
Also other repeated blooms.

I purchased a hibiscus a while back, and didn't know the color.

We also visited Table Rock lake while in Branson.



Also took a little boat ride

wynnsfolly: (blue tulip)
One little mimosa bloom, chinese dayflower (something I like, even if it is a weed), and more pictures of the amaryllis just in case it never blooms again.



wynnsfolly: (camelia)
In the time weve been here, these amaryllis have bloomed maybe three times, and the first time that two have done so at once.

The elderberries are blooming to, they really messed with the white balance.


There are also still daylilies, and in the distance momosa blooms have popped out.

wynnsfolly: (blue tulip)
As it rains here, I've got a few flowers photographed during the week, most from my mother's place, from my sister-in-law's gardens.



wynnsfolly: (darlin)
Not much time this week, have a begonia

First day-lily bloom of the year.


Only one bloom, so have a bonus shot playing with exposure setting.
Followed by the most recent kitty encounter.
wynnsfolly: (camelia)
This week, among the abundant greenery, we start with two things not floral.

Don't know how you feel about them, but every baby, even a blue jay, is cute.
Not so cute is the next resident of the flower bed.

The buddliea is vibrant this year

I'll finish with a seasonal favorite, the New Dawn rose

wynnsfolly: (darlin)
Just a few new blooms this week.
First one is the most unusual, and guesses are welcome.
Next we have the late narcissus which blooms after the daffodils


Then we have wildflowers or weeds.
wynnsfolly: (camelia)
Trying to find something not washed away





Dogwood, wisteria, cherry and violets
wynnsfolly: (camelia)
Spring has sprung, formosa azaleas are coming in, the vinca groundcover has a bloom or two, and the dogwoods are busting out, though I don't think we'll have a great bloom from them this year. The goats have been tasked with cleaning up weeds in the yard.



wynnsfolly: (camelia)
This week, the early azaleas got serious. Our earliest are the Red Ruffles. The redbuds survived the storms over the last week, which had brought a premature end to many blooming fruit trees such as the braadford pears. The citrus have been moved outside, where we discovered the little lime tree has been working its little heart out over the winter.

wynnsfolly: (darlin)
This week we have hyacinths, regular & grape, daffodils, forsythia and the first buds of the phlox.



wynnsfolly: (camelia)
In the past week a number of blooms have shown up even tho temps have ranged from the mid-70s done to freezing last night.




wynnsfolly: (camelia)
Waiting between early spring & the return of winter, our potted citrud trees are in bloom.
