My garden is reaping the fruits of Mother Nature’s labor.  Our wonderful spring rains have reinvigorated the gardens here in Central Texas, especially mine.

Lush isn’t a word I typically use to describe my garden.  Hardy, drought tolerant, hot…those are the terms that come to mind most often.  

But after this morning’s rain, I took a walk to look at all the lush hues of green in my garden. 

I hope this means that the deer have plenty to eat elsewhere — I’d like to enjoy all this juicy foliage for a while.

Before the sun gets blistering, it’s nice to enjoy this mottled shade.

Columbines, fatsia, ferns, hellebores and Greg’s mistflower are happy with all the rain.

And I found a beautiful Hummingbird moth enjoying my larkspur in the cutting garden.

What’s lush in your garden right now?
