Spring is definitely here. I saw Blue Bonnets, Indian Paint Brushes, wild violets, irises and grape hyacinth blooming all along the road one my way home from the library. When I pulled up in the driveway, I was greeted by a beautiful sight. My Mutabalis rose bush is in full bloom and showing all of it's colors. Each flower starts out as a red bud and slowly fades from pink to peach. I find this plant to be simply amazing.
I've been sharing and commenting and all but begging to win something over at Double Danger all week. Yesterday, all my stalking paid off. I won the "Complete Idiots Guide to Composting" by Chris McLaughlin and I couldn't be more tickled. I am going to donate it to the library after I read it, of course. James and Shala are still giving some great gardening stuff away so make sure you mosey on over there and leave a comment to win.
