Morning Garden Buzz
To look at our lawn now, its hard to find good green grass. With no rain to speak of for nearly a month our lawn in suffering. The only true green grass is around our septic sprinklers. Which I will have to talk later about some interesting analogies I have about that. :)
Anyhoo, the purple hyacinth vine is wonderful. I love its purple veined foliage. It has remained beautiful in spite of the infrequent waterings. We don't tend to hang out there much since wasps have made a home there. I haven't wanted to spray much because of my birdies. I don't want them poisoned PLUS the wasps have helped with the spider population. I don't mind spiders, but everything needs a balance. The wasps aren't too aggressive, so they're ok for me.
I love Morning Glories. :) Yes, they are aggressive, but you just can't beat the beautiful shade of blue! I have plenty of plants to share in the spring too. HeeHee. Last year they bloomed profusely, but this year has been a light show so far. I think the late freeze and current dry conditions have played a role in it.
Look at my bumblebee! Not too good of a picture though. It just wouldn't hold still long enough for a good shot. It LOVES the upright verbena in our yard. I have been amazed at what a wonderful plant this is. I was blessed by a friend who passed this amazing plant on to me. I've seen more honeybees this year and they love this plant too. I love my bees. :)
