OK, for all of you living in the frozen north this blog is especially for you. It’s January in our garden. No Snow here in central Texas! Roses, Snapdragons and Pansies are happily blooming away.
This is taken from under the arbor in the first picture. I’m looking back toward our fountain courtyard. Please keep in mind as you go through my blog, if you’d like to see any of the pictures larger just click on the image.
Some of our irises are in full flower!
In front of our home/studio the garden is also quite happy. Don’t you think the snapdragons in front of the blue containers are striking? The tall red blooms at the base of the oak trees are aloes. Hummingbirds love them.
AND….Bluebonnets are popping up among the snapdragons. In a couple of months this bed should be filled with our Texas State Flower. I’ve started using leaves for mulch in our garden. We have lots of flower beds and lots of leaves! It’s certainly much less expensive than bagged mulch. And we are getting a plethora of earthworms in the soil. So, that’s the latest news from Mikki and Jack’s garden. STAY WARM! Hugs,
