I hope to get one more posting in this week for you all before I leave on my adventures. I have been busy preparing for company to arrive before the trip begins and working in the garden. Yesterday, which also was my birthday (love being born on the first of Spring!) was spent in the garden, tilling away at the earth and planting Marigolds, Lantana and Wildflowers for the butterflies. Last year I planted Wildflowers that are indigenous to Florida and they have never stopped blooming! I've decided to throw wildflower seeds all over the garden and just let nature take it's course! Butterflies are already visiting. I've seen Cabbage White, Gulf Fritillary, Monarch and Cloudless Sulphur. A toad came by to say hello, I rescued both a lizard and a tiny baby frog from the clutches of the cat and both my hibiscus and roses showed off their buds. All in all, it was a wonderful first day of Spring! Here are some images taken this week in my secret garden...enjoy!
