Daffodils bloomed alongside gazanias.
As the temperature climbed the first California poppy of the season unfurled its delicate petals.
By afternoon a clump were in bloom.
And more gazanias opened with their companion alyssum.
The Texas Mountain Laurel opened its blooms which immediately began to fade in the heat.
The dwarf iris, Iris reticulata, bloomed in the sunken garden.
The viburnum 'spring bouquet' flowers changed from pink to white.
And tiny daffodils in the sunken garden bloomed amongst the columbine leaves.
Today is a different day. During the night a chilly wind blew in and this morning it is still there with the temperature hovering at 45° We are forecast a cold night tonight. I may have to return some of my plants to their winter quarters.
The little calamondin tree has blown over and oranges are scattered on the ground.
California poppies and gazanias are closed this morning. It is too unpleasant to work outside. It's just another day in the roller coaster ride of Texas weather.
