I was hoping this tree would burst into bloom the way the growers sent it to the store last year but it was not to be. At least not for the time being. It's still my favorite tree, though.
Got more plants in the mail today. A blue rose, some hardy glads, and some Peruvian lilies. The Peruvian lilies look like dried up bits of grass root but they should do ok. Just have to figure out what's the best place to put them. They don't like the Texas sun and if I put them where they're prettiest, they'll be dead in a few months. Meh. Dumb Texas.
Stars game tonight. Duck season!
