Here's the fountain in our front yard....
This plant is an agapanthas and we didn't realize until it started to bloom that it comes in lavendar or white! I just love the way they sway in the breeze..
Cone tree...I don't know what it is, but it has teeny white flowers and stays green all year.
Bougainvillea. These are all over and come in lots of colors. We have the fuschia and orange, but I've seen them in deep purple, white and shades of pink.
Marigolds. I am not a lover of this...they are too round. I can't explain it, really. But, they can take the heat and don't take too much care. We've got yellow and gold in the front yard and in the back.
Confederate Jasmine. This vine has really taken off in the past couple of months.....
It smells so sweet! As soon as you come out of the back door you know it's there.
Just outside of the back door is this combination of two different climbing vines, Mandavilla and Alamanda.
Never seen a bug like this...electric blue, red and black and white polka dot wings.
And...since I am a believer in karma, superstition and all of that, we have a little gargoyle in the planter by the front door to keep bad stuff away!
Hope your weekend was great and that spring is looking good wherever you are!
**PS** Sandi asked what type of camera I use. It's just a little HP Photosmart R727...skinny enough to fit in my pocket. A really nice camera is on my wishlist!
