I thought I'd start with my ice plant flowers since they recently have started to bloom for me this year.
I am always eager to see if the ice plant comes back and for the last ten years or so they have.
Both of my hydrangea bushes are beginning to show some signs of colors on the flower clusters.
I enjoy the cycle of blooms on my hydrangeas. They begin by turning blue although they are in the early stages now.
By late summer they usually begin to change over to almost a wine color but that will be three or more months away.
The blackberry vines are beginning to have flowers which are making this moth (maybe it's a butterfly but I think it's a moth) happy.
I looked up how to tell the difference in a moth and butterfly and the antennae is one clue. The critter above looks like it has a moth antennae but the way she's holding her wings while feeding was the clue towards it being a butterfly. Maybe it's having an identity crisis.
I am continuing to have a lot of different roses in bloom and I hope they get some rain soon as I'm trying not to do any watering.
I do use the old bird bath water when I change it out to give a few plants a drink.
I'm glad that Queen Anne's lace has some a nice name because I realize it's considered a weed. To me though a weed is a delightful volunteer unless it crowds out something else I want more.
I guess I'll end with one of my favorites, a gerbera daisy which is another of my flowers that comes back year after year.
