When I was a kid, growing up in South Dakota, a rare spot of warm weather in February was cause for rejoicing. More often it is cold and snow and ice in February, as it was last week when I was back visiting my dear Mother. However upon returning to Arizona I found Spring waiting for me. My Hibiscus finally opened the bud that has been slowly growing all winter.
The Catalina Mountains still have a dusting of snow, and with recent rains in town, a new layer of snow in the mountains!
The snowy mountains are just a pretty backdrop, while in town my Hyacinth continue to grow- I should see flowers soon.
My little Mescal Bean trees- almost 2 years old now!
buds on the Red Headed Irishman Cactus.
Passion flower buds marching along the twine to the bird feeders. When these bloom it is going to be so pretty!
There are many, many off shoots from the main vine- it didn't die back this winter, just slowed down and now with the warm weather it is going to town.
New Canna leaves coming up.
I think this is a yellow Jasmine vine...can't recall for sure but flowers are starting.
