April 13 - IPAD

Happy International Plant Appreciation Day! I don't know how you are celebrating it. I myself don't have any big plans, other than showing off the backyard again. We don't have indoor plants. We don't keep anything alive indoors that will be eaten by cats: no plants, no mice, no birds, no bite-sized lizards. Anyway, here are some of the outdoor guys.

Purplish. Always nice in a flower. Good going! Grow like crazy!

Texas has great wildflowers, but the sharp, pointy stuff thrives too. That poor agave on the right got too frosty last December and I ended up giving it an ugly trim to get rid of the dead stuff. I'm attempting to start making tea out of that mullein. Good for the lungs, they say.
