Wonderful color, Janice, and there are those great hostas that I can't grow.

Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle and overcome your difficulties. Grace enough to confess and forsake your sins. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears."

Isn't spring great? Wonderful show, Janice. Your garden looks beautiful.

Carol, tell me more about the coral epi. It is a new plant for me.

A few more things are blooming for me:

This is the Dwarf poinciana. It only stands about five feet tall which is good because I have to protect it from frost.

Thumb of 2011-04-25/hawkarica/e53b1b
Thumb of 2011-04-25/hawkarica/e108f9

Then there is the jacaranda tree. At forty feet or so, it is big enough to take care of itself. In full bloom, it is a traffic stopper.

Thumb of 2011-04-25/hawkarica/f7c9b0

I'm not very artsy but this is nice photo of the Canary Island date palm from under the jacaranda tree.

Thumb of 2011-04-25/hawkarica/eac0c3

Finally, it is gardenia season and here are the pair that flank the front entry. What a wonderful fragrance when coming or going.

Great shots Jim!! I can smell the gardenia from here! (my fav scent) The jacaranda is exquisite and the dwarf poinciana reminds of the papillio orchid.

Beautiful Jim! Wish I had room for a Poinciana. Our Jacarandas are not blooming yet.
What do you need to know about the Epiphyllum? That one is in a 24' basket and has flowers about 8" across. The flowers only last 2 or 3 days, but are well worth the wait. They play well with orchids! Here is a link for more culture info http://www.epies.net/

Salix integra 'Hakuro Nishiki', a favorite. Hard to capture the shades of pink on this amazing plant. It just glows. Hesperis with Hakuro.

Amsonia with Iris. This is the back bed where the voles are even dining on the Iris. Their fate is sealed! ( I hope)
