I will relent again as today there are clusters of fragrant pink roses above our little seating area in the front garden. I plan to do a serious pruning after she has finished the big show removing some of the really old canes. Then maybe with the new soil things will improve for the rest of the year.
I was interested to see the gardeners at the Wildflower Center pulling out the pink primroses. They said they were just pulling them back from the edges to control them, which is exactly what I do. I still like to have a few clumps of them here and there.
The buzzard is keeping a watchful eye over the creek bed. You can see the bluebonnets in the background which are taking over the seating area.
Columbine and gaura fill the raised beds.
I wish these plants would always stay this tidy but there is not much hope for that in Texas.
