Plant Fever!

Each Fall and Spring, our Victoria County Master Gardener's Association has a plant sale. They have good plants at good prices, and they sell out of the unusual stuff fast! If you want something in particular,you need to be in line before the doors open. After purchasing my plants, I usually walk through the VEG or Victoria Educational Gardens. The above flower is a Chinese Lantern (Abutilon x hybridum) a perennial that originates in South America.
The waterfall and pond is gorgeous. They have huge koi in it too!

The entrance into the second phase of the garden leads one through a pergola covered in white climbing roses. I loved the petals on the pavers.!

The Indian Blankets were so pretty with the dew still on them. They are a native wildflower in Texas. Since it is still early spring, many things are not yet blooming. I'll have to make a trip to the gardens in May! The VCMGA is also sponsoring a tour of several private gardens in May. I can't wait!
Ya'll Come Back!
