Spring forward

Even though we have been having below normal temperatures, there is no denying that spring is here. The problem with spring in Houston is that it is very short and it is followed by summer, which is verrrrrrry long. I am trying not to dwell on that and just savor the moment. And at the moment, this is what we have blooming in our garden:
SnapdragonsHere is an overview of the flower bed and herb garden
And here is the herb gardenI finally found some basil to plant
These are the tomatoes we planted on February 2nd...yes those are blooms! Maybe we will actually get some tomatoes this year.
And here are my Meyer lemon blooms...
look at those little baby lemons :-)
And here are the roses which are thriving after their February pruning

But alas, no lilacs, forsythia or peonies...
