Today we spent the morning at Mercer Arboretum. Things are beginning to emerge. The hard freeze this winter took it's toll but nature has it's way.
Here are a few things I'd really like to have.
Texas Mountain Laurel. It looks like a tree form of wisteria. The blooms are lavendar. It's a girly tree.
Freesia: We stopped in our tracks when we saw this. It's a corm. I'm pretending I know what that means. I'll be looking it up. Basically, it's a bulb- I think. Gotta get me some of this!
Harlequin Flower: The picture doesn't do it justice. The yellow center is outlined, then the pop of orange or coral. It's like it is wearing eyeliner. Vibrant and a must have for me.
The Flintstones: I want to outline my front flowerbed with rocks like these. Scroll down and you'll see the area and the need. I need to meet Fred Flintstone so he can bring me some boulders.
Here is the front flowerbed. I have hydrangeas at the base of the tree. From left to right- oakleaf, Merritt's Beauty, and some kind that I need to find the tags for. A closer look. We dug out junipers that were always a nice green but very boring. Now I'm trying to figure out how it will all go together.
And last I have to include the Easter picture of the azaleas. I keep posting about them....but I'm in love. They'll be gone soon so I enjoy every minute with them.
Happy Easter All!
