A few more from Wade and Alina's garden...the top photo is a beautiful plant, Caesalpinia pulcherrima, or Pride of Barbados (pulcherrima literally means "very pretty"). It's also called a Mexican Bird of Paradise, and is a favorite in Texas. It is a great, very drought tolerant plant that attracts pollinators including butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. It was stunning!

The second photo...well, in one of my dreams my pepper plants would be five feet tall like these, and in my other dream, Fred would wear this hat every single day.

Happy Mother's Day
