... And Just One More Picture

Here is a particularly nice shot of a section of the front yard from yesterday morning:

The front border, in full bloom

Now if only I can get the rest of the garden to be this lush...

  1. Looks great! Lushness is something I'm always working toward. It just takes time and patience! (sigh)

  4. Wow. Serious color.I like it. Are you seeing butterflies much yet? We seem to have not so many this year. Sometimes they start late for us for some reason.

  5. HolleyGarden - Thank you! It does take time indeed... But I guess the nice part is that we can always dream of what it will one day look like.

    Giga - Thanks for stopping by!

    Donna - Thanks! Yes, that is a flowering cactus, eastern prickly pear cactus (Opuntia humifusa) to be exact. It has been doing well for me as long it is planted in a spot that is sunny and quite dry.

    ChrisU - Thank you! We have not had a lot of butterflies yet either. A few cabbage butterflies maybe but I have yet to see any of the monarchs or swallowtails we usually get.
