Flower Time Again

           Yep its that time of year again in Texas when my yard errupts with tons of beauty....I just love everyday going into my gardens to see what nature has given me that day. My yard is made up of OP's (other peoples stuff) meaning I have small treasures from friends and family that grace my yard every year, so lets begin the tour for March....

Miniature Iris in Deep Purple and Yellow

I missed the other minatures while on vacation so even I will have to wait and see them next year...I planted then in the exciting uh....Ok on

This is the only thing left from my original landscapeing when  I purchased my house, outside of the tree in my back yard. I have two in the front yard and one in the back yard.
