Last spring on a New Braunfels, Texas, Historic Homes tour, we admired some naturalized white flowers in the lawns of many of the historic homes.
They look like wild onion or snowdrift…
They are all over lawns in the old parts of town in the spring. Next door to one of the homes, we visited with a kindly man who was out gardening. We talked about the little mystery bulb and he offered me a start. Before I could politely decline, he had a shovel out and he was loading a box with several nice clumps. Needless to say, I was thrilled. Well, miracle of miracles, they survived the drought of last summer and the deer have left them alone…so…here is my first tiny flower.
Not much to brag about yet, but it’s only February! I know it will take years until I have stands like the old homes, but I’m really excited about my little group. Later in the spring, I hope to post again with more flowers…I didn’t try to count the buds because I’m superstitious about counting my chickens before they hatch.
I’m late posting today and not showing valentines…if I have a chance on Tuesday, maybe I’ll make the rounds of Pink Saturday posts that Beverly has gathered at How Sweet the Sound. Hope your Valentine’s Day is lovely and your week is Pink.
