Spring is Springing

Things come to life quickly here. Many of my plants are not fond of frosts and freezes, but they bounce back quickly once the weather warms. The more delicate things are protected as well as we can manage. The hibiscus is happily blooming, the wisteria has come and gone, and the bananas are busy putting out new shoots. The oleander and cannas are budding out and ready to flower soon.

I'm trying to get everything planted before the hot weather sets in. I like to crowd things a bit to keep the ground under them shaded. This year, with the sprinkler system up and running, we should have quite a show.
