Gardens Blogger's Bloom Day sponsored by Carol at May Dreams Gardens is special day for garden bloggers to share what's blooming in their gardens on the 15th of each month.
March in Texas is bluebonnet season when our favorite native wildflower, Lupinus texensis, takes center stage. A few years ago we planted a patch in our back yard and they have begun blooming right on schedule this week. This is a preview and they will get their own post next week.
That's Hot Lips Salvia across the way. It has continued to bloom all winter.
Native wild verbena grows in the field behind the house and has found its way into the buffalo grass lawn along with the bluebonnets.
Around the side by the kitchen window the orange Mexican Flame Vine blooms provide striking early spring color.
The Meyer Lemon is blooming prolifically so we should have fresh lemons to use next fall. Wish I could share the wonderful citrus scent with you.
In the front yard the Salvia greggii is back in full bloom after its winter hiatus.
Four-nerve daisy is a year round bloomer in the gravel garden.
Nearby the Hesperaloe parviflora is sending out buds and we have treated them with deer repellent to see if we can keep a few to full bloom this year. The yellow blooms are Caesalpinia pulcherrima.
That's the bloom report for March from my garden. Now I'm off to May Dreams Gardens to see what is blooming in the rest of the world.
