SPRING IN THE TEXAS GARDEN

Banana shrub, (Michelia figo). Has nothing to do with bananas, but has a banana smoothie smell to its flowers.

Banana shrub, (Michelia figo). Has nothing to do with bananas, but has a banana-smoothie smell to its flowers. A evergreen shrub that is doing well in Texas.

Its snowing in Norway today and I must say that even if it rains here in Cypress Texas, today I’m very grateful for my extended summer here.

Everything grows tremendously fast here in the garden. Maybe all the plants are hurrying to grow as much as they can manage before the heat kicks in? Now there are around 77 * F (25 * C) and quite humid. And it grows so that I almost see the difference from morning to evening.

Take for example the Sage (Salvia officinalis) I bought at the grocery store in the winter, as a rather small, sickly plant. Now it stands in full bloom with lots of flowers. Home in Scandinavia Sage barely get flowers if it is lucky that it survives the winter at all.

And the Basil are almost alarming huge consider the fact that it was seeds only two months ago!

But its all just false modesty. I love that its growing with all my heart.

This is the typical me. Have a lots of things I don't know where to plant and then shove it in the ground..
