Poppies and Roses

At this time of the year there is never a dull moment in my Texas hill country garden.  In my routine morning trek out to the vegetable patch, I made a wonderful discovery.  Right there in the middle of Mo's garden was this beautiful, tall, pink, perfect poppy blossom!  I couldn't believe it.  When I went to inspect it, I noticed that it was a big patch of poppies and that there were quite a few buds down in it.  Looks as if I'll have a show of poppies for a little while anyway.  Luckily it was a cloudy overcast morning, so with camera in hand, I began snapping away.  Look at this beauty.  Such a gift.


A few of you have asked me if those beautiful rose buds I posted a couple of weeks ago have popped yet.  Well, yes they have and here they are!

So much beautiful color in the garden during the early spring.  It is simply wonderful.

    Just checked your blog. You are one busy girl.
    Everything is beautiful. I planted a few flowers on Tuesday hope to plant some more over
    the weekend. I've had a busy week hope to take it easy over the weekend. Did you get the last
    e-mail I sent you about a gift for the baby?
    Talk to you soon
