Hello everyone, I wish you could hear the above cardinal singing today in and around the garden. She, and it is a female, is flitting everywhere and singing constantly. She goes from the bougainvillea bush to the car and admires herself in the mirror, then to the top of the car, then to the bush. Which brings me to the question; where is the male? Do you suppose he is sitting on the nest? Is this normal? The nest is in the bougainvillea, so he must be there. She hasn't the time! She is too busy admiring herself in the car mirror and chirping. Well, on to the blooms in the garden!
The Zinnias are really pretty, especially these tiny ones above.
I love the sweet potato vine planted with petunias. You can see some Caladium bulbs sprouting in the background. I planted a few more this year.
Love all the colors of Spring!
The front pot contains Basil and Oregano, so I run out and pick some frequently for Italian dishes.
Here are Caladiums from bulbs I planted last year and they have been up quite some time.
