A friend gave me some winecups, these are called, at the start of Spring. Each plant bursts out of one point in the ground, and spreads out above in beautiful symmetry, one stalk remaining overhead. Just delightful.
It's hard to capture the symmetry in a photo. It's like a little burst of pink fireworks.
And of course I have to raise a toast to our annual sunflower visitors. Now at least 7 feet tall.
The Mexican feather grass we put in in 2006, has reseeded and come back every year. The more mature ones turn blond in late Spring. With a breeze, they really go "Barbie."
A little progress on the creek bed...I'm using some old pavers for now, to hold the sides in place, and help me see where I'm heading.
