Two days ago I posted a picture of one of the plants in my yard. It is not unusual of me to plant something and not know its name (and I sleep fine at night!) However, Midwestern Plant Girl was stumped and I hate to think my photo could cause her to lose sleep.
The previous shot did not clearly show the bloom. So here is a better photo of the bloom….hopefully this photo will help Plant Girl identify this flower. If not…I hope its not too devastating!
The mystery flower
Yesterday I visited a neighborhood garden near my office. I wasn’t sure what might be growing this time of year. But it was such a beautiful day it wouldn’t have mattered if the beds were bare. Just being outside was wonderful.
I was surprised to notice this tree yesterday while out walking. It appears to have white buds popping out all over. Its been cold (by our standards) for the past couple weeks here in Texas and this week it feels like spring. But spring is at least another month away and we will have several more cold snaps between now and then.
I’ve done a little Google search in an attempt to learn what this tree is…I’ve had no luck. I’m hoping Midwestern Plant Girl might be able to help me out with identification!
