Heads and Tails

Okay.  Can somebody please tell me what happened to March?

In my last post I was anxiously awaiting spring's arrival, and here it is already the tail end of March!  I've been so busy with work that I can hardly keep my head above water.  

And  I can't seem to make heads nor tails out of the crazy weather we've had this year.   Winter was more like spring, and now spring is starting to feel a whole lot like summer.  

I sure hope we are not headed for another summer like last year!    If I think too much about the summer of 2011, I might go into a tailspin and get my tail feathers in a ruffle, so I just need to keep my head on straight and enjoy this Spring before it passes me by.

While I've been working my tail off,  my garden has been blooming its head off.   So let's head out to the garden and show you what's been going on.

The wildflowers are putting on their annual show.



California Poppies

Somnifera Poppies

Pink Bluebonnets

More spring blooms...

'Tahiti' Daffodil

Bearded Iris

Ox-Eye Daisy

Lots of lush new growth in the front perennial garden.  
The fountain is bubbling again after a winter break :-)

The maples in the backyard are full of spring color.

I will show more pictures in the coming days, but right now my tail is dragging after another long day of gardening, and I need to lay my weary head down to sleep.

Would you like to bet it's going to be a great year for gardening?   
What'll it be.....Heads or tails?

Until next time...

Toni :-)
