The weather has been so gorgeous this past week that tree, flowers, and bushes are budding and blossoming all over the garden. It's so wonderful, I had to stop my garden renovation activities earlier this week, get the camera, and just take some photographs of it all.
The lilac hibiscus is blooming for the first time in two years. I thought I'd lost it in the winter of 2006-2007 to a nasty freeze. I'm happy that it's come back with its amazing blue-purple blossoms.
The My Fifi rose just went in January/February rose planting of 2007, but it's already very established. Unlike the other roses, it didn't lose its foliage this winter. The small, dark, and glossy leaves stayed rust and mildew free all winter.
The pink mystery rose never stopped producing blooms all winter so I thought there would be a lull for a while this spring before there were more blooms. I guess I was wrong.
And finally, the first freesia has bloomed! Hubby loves the freesia fragrance best of all the flowers so I always called them "his freesia". These are for you, Sweetie!
