The garden has been busy. This year Dale sent me the first ever flowers on the Yellow Brugmansia. The color is rich and deep. The flower pods were hidden beneath the large leaves and surprised me —at first I only noticed one—several days later I spotted the second pod. The other gift that thrilled me was flowers on the Texas Mountain Laurel—I had heard that the flowers smelled like grape candy or gum—–well that’s exactly what I experienced. It was a real treat. The flowers look like a larger Lilac bloom. The water lilies delight me every day as do the other flowers and plants. We have two Banana bunches that are almost ready to pick. The loquat tree was full of fruit as were both Peach trees. I wish I could send every one of you a Peach to experience the juicy fresh taste. Plums are ripening as are the few Apricots and Almonds. Oh and how can I forget the Mangos–lots of Mangos. I couldn’t photograph everything this time around—maybe next time. There are six pages of photos.
