From all the pollen in the air, I'd say that Everything is blooming. It has been a joy during my commute back and forth from work. I travel a few minutes in the country and the azaleas are just beautiful this year. It's the true sign of Spring in the South. I will try to post some pics this weekend.

The Bluebonnets have been blooming for the last couple of weeks.  This is a small cluster at the side of our neighborhood.  My poor photography skills don't do justice to their color.

Some people aren't a fan of them, but I like Coreopsis (aka Tickseed).  They drop a LOT of seed, so you have to keep the area hoed if you don't want them to spread, but I'm willing to do that.  I like the color they add.  These are at the gate to my vegetable garden.

It's always interesting to see the difference in seasons depending on where each of us live.  Here in zone 9a, southeast Texas, tulips are rarely seen, and our azalea bloom cycle ended a week ago.  There's nothing but leaves on the bushes now. 

Those are some nice looking blooms.  Thanks for posting.

The amaryllis bulb I purchased from a Master Gardener plant sale is blooming.  I think it's a St. Joseph's variety.  After the bloom fades, I'll transplant the bulb from its pot into the garden.  Here in southeast Texas, the bulbs will survive in the ground 8)

Yes, that is a St. Joseph Lily.  I cant believe you had to buy one-I have several.  In fact, there is a house that is going to be torn down not too far from me and they had a front flower bed full.  I dug some of those, even!

Catgrass - that's the story of my life.  Always a day late and a dollar short.  LOL.  Fortunately, I only paid $3 for the bulb, but free is definitely better.  I've been fortunate to meet and make friends who have passed along a variety of bulbs and flowers.  I just haven't run into anyone who was willing to part with some of the St. Joseph's lilies.  I'm hoping my bulb will propagate and spread.

The hydrangeas have started to bloom.  The summer heat can take a toll on them, but they look great this time of the year.
