When I was up in Round Top this past weekend I found this little Angel Vine.
I had one of these soft feathery vines once before and they charm me.
I put it on the shelf above the potting sink. I need to find a cute pot for it.
But the big exciting news here on the porch is this latest development ….
Our Gardenia bush has quite a few buds and yesterday afternoon
one of them started to open up!
Here it is. We are so excited!!! The fragrance is delightful.
Here is another pic.
The impatiens are blooming. I bought a hummingbird feeder which
I plan to hang as soon as I go over to our local hardware store and
pick up the right hook.
Tomorrow is my brother-in-law Brian's birthday. He and Cindy have
several hummingbird feeders on their back porch that overlooks
Lake Travis up in Austin. Brian keeps all the feeders full of nectar
that he makes himself and the hummingbirds love it. David and I
had such a great time watching all the hummers when we last
visited Brian and Cindy that we decided to try to entice some
on our porch too. I read that hummingbirds like impatiens so I am
glad that I have several on the porch already.
Well that's it for now. Stop by tomorrow because I will start posting
the photos I took at Round Top. I spent the last couple of hours getting
them all ready to share.
Here is a cute little Bentley update. As y'all know, Bentley's
best friend Toby lives next door. Every night when I let Bentley
out for the last time before his bedtime, Bentley runs over to
the fence and says good night to Toby. They are so cute.
They are BFF's!
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
