Pretty things...

Just a few pretty things in my garden today.  I thought the light was nice on this Bulbine, which I have to grow in a pot inside the badk yard to save them from the deer.

These are shots of my Duranta tree - which I've nurtured in a pot for about 10 years.  The white blooms and little berries are so delicate, they belie the toughness of this hearty specimen.




I'm happy to say that after some weeding and watering and cleaning of birdbaths, I actually spent the afternoon out back relaxing with my family today -- swimming and reading. It was delightful, and something I don't do enough of because weeds and errant plants holler at me when I try to sit down most of the time! I just ignored them today.
