16 Tasks of the Festive Season - Square #6 - Bodhi Day

Picture of Garden


My whole yard is kind of garden-like, with plants here and there around the place.  Right now everything is pretty dormant, though the chuparosas are still blooming a little bit.


Spring -- which actually starts in mid-January -- is when everything really starts to go crazy, especially if we've had sufficient rain during the winter.  Unfortunately, we haven't had much rain this year so far.


But last year was a good one for spring flowers.  I can spend hours taking pictures of the cactus in bloom,and I think I already shared photos of my ironwood tree.  But what I really have a lot of fun with are the purple sage bushes when they are literally humming with bees.
