Just because

It was a beautiful morning and I spent a couple minutes wandering with camera in hand. (Only a couple because the battery was almost dead and the light was changing too fast to run back to the barn for a spare.)

 The roses bloomed just in time for Easter and will keep on blooming now until November/December

 This is the second year for these deep red Dianthus

First year for these Giant Snowflakes (With a name like that obviously a patented variety, but they still look good mounding in a small container

This poor cedar got topped by an ice storm this year. Since it's about 30 feet tall it took my longest pole to get a saw up there to cut loose the toppled bit.

Even the dreaded yaupon can brighten things up in this light with its pretty berries.

And the first round of wildflowers; bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrush, Firewheels, etc.; are probably past their prime but we have plenty more coming, including these Queen Ann's Lace.

This is a twin to the topped cedar and is what they're supposed to look like.
