it’s that time of year here in Dallas. Too hot. Hot as this pink gomphrena blooming away in the heat that it loves. Enjoy.
I love these flowers. They are called “Bat Faced Cupheas”. Aren’t they adorable? This link tells about them. I ordered mine via the web and they’re growing like crazy. I have them in a pot in the sunny front yard. They make me smile every time I look at them.
Here’s a few photos of some of the potted flowers blooming beautifully in my front yard. I love this time of the year and we’ve been very lucky to have not only tolerable temperatures but rain as well. Everything is green and happy. Enjoy.
My favorite tree is blooming. It must be spring. I can smell the tiny blossoms’ sweet perfume in the air. I know they’re not a desired tree, but I love the scent of the Chinaberry above all other flowers’ scent. We don’t have a Chinaberry tree on our property, but there is one on a quiet street that I drive on my daily commute. Yesterday, I stopped the car and broke off a couple of the blooming low hanging branches. Don’t tell anyone. Those branches are in a vase here in my studio making every breath I take a delight. Here’s some studio shots of those tiny perfumed blossoms. Enjoy.
When it’s April in Texas, that means it is festival time and the bluebonnets are blooming. This weekend alone, there’s the Main Street Art Festival in downtown Fort Worth, there’s a Taco Festival in Deep Ellum, it’s Record Store Day and lots of area shops have free stuff happening, the Bath House at White Rock Lake has the Art Mart, there’s a Guitar Show at Market Hall and best of all, the Bluebonnet Festival in Ennis. I’ve been to all of these one time or another except the Taco Festival, this is the first year for it. A few years back when we went to the Ennis Bluebonnet Festival, it was one of those perfect years for blooms, plenty of warmth, sun and rain. I shot a lot of fabulous photos and I’m sharing some those with you now. Get out and have some fun this weekend. Enjoy.
