The old adage "April showers bring May flowers" is usually true, but we didn't have much rain in April. In fact, it has been rather dry here. There have been several brush fires, none close enough to see, but at least one close enough to smell when the wind blows in the right direction.
I'm thankful that the only fiery looking things in our yard are the cardinals,
and the canna lily.
the tomato plants are growing and the first of the tomatoes are appearing --
the Eva Bell
and the Russian Purple
the cuban treefrogs have come back to their condo (also known as my wind chimes!)
and the lizards continue their patrol of the yard.
