Welcome to Blooming Friday! The theme this week is In The Air! Although our landscape is never really bereft of flowers or foliage, there’s magic in the air around this time of the year. New leaves…buds… that refreshing, rejuvenating green, the renewal of life…. There’s plenty of bird activity, caterpillars on a feeding spree and the promise of a thousand blooms. It’s also the time of the year when the heat threatens to come full on but the March wind and the rain make sure that we get to enjoy the last phase of coolness. It’s when the Amaryllis lilies bloom, usually from the end of March to the end of April. The pictures above were taken in my front yard a few days ago.
Head over to Katarina’s @ ROSES AND STUFF to see more posts from around the world. I leave you with this image of the Common Jay butterfly feeding on the kalanchoe. I’m sure the the coming weeks will see plenty of wildlife activity amidst my plants. Reason enough for me to spend more time working outside…..
