Not much is going on in my yard right now, but I do have a few things blooming or nearing bloom.

My Moringa is in bloom. Woodrow likes the contrast in the photos of the white flowers against the darkening sky:



Also all of the bougainvillea are in bloom. This one has some great potential, I think. It's pretty rangy right now, but I think with some trimming and training, it can be a really nice specimen along the back fence.

My favorite view right now is of the Moringa with the bougie in the background.


And then there is my mango tree, which I am very excited to see blooming.

Having just moved to this home, I've never dealt with a blooming mango tree before! I'm very excited to see what becomes of it, whether I get a bunch of mangoes come summer, and if so whether they will be delicious!

The Cape Jasmine is just about to bloom, which is nice to see since a few weeks ago it was really yellowing from drought.

My poor little Angel's Trumpet is making a valiant effort, and getting set to let loose with a barrage of blooms.

And the Chenille Plant is always blooming with furry tendrils.

Also my purple basil that I have in a pot by the screen door is in bloom.
Purple Sage

And there are always weeds in bloom around here. Does that count? :)


We'll see how it looks in a few months after I can get some fertilizing and pruning done.
