We have been in a drought. No rain since the middle of March and the gardens are a slow go right now. I have been watering nearly everyday now for 2 weeks. We are expecting some thunderstorms and possible severe weather on Saturday. I am thankful for the rain coming and hope it doesn't get too severe. I am hoping to move around some things I have planted and want to put some more seedlings into the beds but that would kill them till I have some moister soil to work with. I have a REAL problem with putting plants too close together. I am seeking a fuller look to my gardens and realize that some plants don't like to be jumbled up but me and my gardens are always a work in progress. They all need a shot of fertilizer after the rain.
Had to share this little beauty that I found yesterday upon arriving home from work. The orange center was speaking to me when I walked up. How nice that the flowers talk to me. I bet you hear them sometime too.
This is the fountain in front of Mr and Mrs Bellingrath home. You can barely see it to the right. There was a lot of growth in the front of the home this time and could not get a good photo. I sure hope they trim some of it back in the coming months. The trees have grown so much since I was last there.
This is my prize azalea. I do not know it's name but I am in love with it. She looks like a rose to me. I don't see this one very often.
I wanted to share a couple more shots of the pretty daffodil. This particular daffodil doesn't hang around too long either. Only a day or two before it wants to hang its head down. I have a couple of daffodils that have maintained the same bloom for 9-13 days. Betsy at Joyful Reflections has identified this one as White Lion. She is so pretty.
