I had my grandsons with me all weekend which is always an adventure but they helped me take all my garden pictures today, my oldest grandson asked me to take a picture of this mushroom and I liked the way it turned out. We have "adventure" walks when they are here.

Spring has Sprung?

Everything has really popped up with the warm weather, seems really really early to me, hope we don't get bit in the behind with cold weather :). These plants are day lilies, surprise lilies and some daffodils.

Bleeding Hearts showing their noses.

My bleeding hearts are out of the ground, the pink foilage is of course the most familar bleeding heart with pink flowers, the green foilage is a white bleeding heart.

Mitriostigma axillare "African Gardenia

Speaking of scent, this little known plant smells wonderful, the flowers are small but fragrant. It is in bloom currently, it blooms off and on all year long. Soon my hoyas will be setting buds, now there is a plant that smells like heaven.

More Angel Wing Begonias

A couple more pictures of two angel wing begonias. I still can't figure out why it has taken me so long to grow these plants. I am going to have to read up on proporating them so I can have even more next winter, now if they only had a wonderful scent.
