My four o'clocks are coming up

The ajuga (spelling?) is up and flowering...thought I lost it

my mint 2 weeks ago

my mint a week ago

My mint now

Trees a couple of weeks ago
Trees now.....
There have been a lot of chances....plants are coming up and blooming....
Our weather seems to be changing daily....79...80...30...60...75....40....59.....
The nice thing about TEXAS if you don't like the weather....hang around a few minutes
and it will change...
Lastnight some areas got hail...pea size up to baseball size....we were fortunate....
we only got wind...rain...and lightening... lost power for a few minutes....
Karla Kuskin
I'm shouting I'm singing
I'm swinging through trees
I'm winging sky-high
With the buzzing black bees.
the sun I'm the moon I'm the dew on the rose.
a rabbit Whose habit Is twitching his nose.
lively I'm lovely I'm kicking my heels.
I'm crying "Come dance"
To the freshwater eels.
I'm racing through meadows
Without any coat
a gamboling lamb
I'm a light leaping goat
a bud I'm a
I'm a dove on the wing.
I'm running on rofftops
welcoming spring!

You have some great things happening around there. I have several types of mints......don't think you can kill it. As fas as the Hibiscus, I have 5 coming back in the ground and 2 coming back in containers. I know that variety is hardy it's the huge white single bloom with the red center. I'll probably bite the bullet and plant the Jane Cowell in the ground too!!

SPRING is in the air! Change happens so fast; it is just amazing! Love the poem and the song! "I'm a light leaping goat." is my favorite line! LOL!

Your front that brought the storms is passing through here today. It's supposed to be in the 60s behind the rain so that will be nice. Happy Tuesday Deb ♥
