Like A Patch Of Sunshine

The rain has made things grow like crazy.  We are so green it is unbelievable.
This includes our tiny lawn, except for one thing...we have a patch of wild snapdragons in the lawn that I just cannot mow down until they've had their initial bloom.  Here they are like a patch of sunshine.


  1. How sweet---I agree, how could one possibly mow those down??
    I'm so happy you're green down there. After those last few years, you folks NEED the break from all the brown.

  2. I wouldn't mow those down either. They really are a happy color next to the purple bloomers. Enjoy!

  3. I don't blame you for not mowing down those snapdragons! I have some daffodils in one part of the yard that aren't blooming but are still standing tall. It's been a struggle to keep my husband from mowing them down too soon:)

  4. Beautiful yard and home. We had recent rain which really helped the lawn and flowers. Wishing you a nice evening.

  5. Wild snapdragons!! Wow!! What a gift! So glad you've had some rain. Everything looks great. :o)

  6. I love your snapdragons. Wild? I've not seen any here.

  7. I am so glad it has rained so much for you. We have had to water some but not much. I have written two new Blogs pages since I have been on your blog so I have to catch with you been a while since I have read your blog. Your yard looks great. I bought and planted some more Salvia The name is Queen Blue. I hope they are like yours. Yours always looks good and stands up. These multiplied last year I like that.

  8. They make me smile! They look great with the blue too!
