Spring is Here

You know that spring is here when the wisteria is in bloom. (Pictured above). This vigorous vine just about covers the entire pergola with it's fragrant clusters of purple flowers. 

Glowing in the afternoon sunlight is an abutilon (chinese hat) flower.

Dangling from a fork of a tree, I found an orchid I had planted long ago.....and now it is flowering, what a lovely surprise!

And lastly, a rhondaleisha shrub in bloom, with it's pretty scented pink flowers.

I love this time of year in the garden,
lots of pretty flowers
and lovely fragrance in the air.......
