In March 2015 I blogged about my small phlox and how I covet my friend Corey’s large phlox.
Some things never change. Each spring my little patch of phlox brightens up, spreads about an 1/8 of an inch, blooms, then fades away.
While across town Corey’s phlox burst across his flower bed laying a blanket of flowers across the dirt.
The good news is…I may finally have an edge on Corey and his phlox.
Tonight I noticed my little patch of phlox was blooming!!
Its the night before Thanksgiving and my little patch of phlox is vibrant and blooming. I guess the important question is whether Corey’s phlox is also blooming…but then again, if I don’t ask then I can imagine his phlox laying dormant, unaware that there is a brave little patch of phlox across town that is outshining it tonight!!

A few more pictures from our visit to the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens
Apparently this did not post last night….I’m not sure why….but her it is. Yesterday’s photo, today!
I recently heard someone say….”Crepe Myrtles are a good enough reason to live in Texas.”
I thought that had a ring of truth. Having grown up in the North I was not familiar with crepe myrtles. They are such a beautiful tree and they add so much color to an area that can be quite brown during the summer.
I don’t have a crepe myrtle in my yard….but I plan to plant one (or more) this Fall.
Last night I posted a picture of a mimosa tree. The photo I posted was taken during a bike ride. It was a small plant at the side of the road. Recently I’ve noticed this tree is in full bloom all over the Fort Worth area.
Today, while driving around for work, I decided to take pictures of a few mimosa trees so I could share them with you all tonight. They are such beautiful trees. Full of blooms and color.
I hope you all enjoy them!
