Annuals Birds and animals in the garden Spring


Lizards in Texas.

One of the great advantages of knowing a bit about the different garden plants is that I can take one look at a seedling and decide if it is weeds or self-seeding flower plants from last year.

Then I can carefully dig up some of the self-seeding plants and gather them on spots they can grow big on. The rest goes in the compost bin together with common weeds.

Blooming white Cleome

I base a lot of the spring blooming in the garden on self-seeding annuals. Like this white Cleome.

Castor bean in bloom

The Castor bean is an avid self-seeder. They have just started to flower. (The red ones).

Castor bean is another really eager self-seeder. I have written about them before here. Its almost shamefully easy and convenient and have som avid self-seeders in the garden here in Texas.

White nicotiana.

The Nicotiana is another self-seeder. Here with some Canna in bloom.

Opossum baby

An opossum baby is wobbling around in the garden at the moment. When Ulla (the poodle) and I found it yesterday he was busy running around in circles. He manages to behave so silly that Ulla and Milo appear as Nobel Prize candidates.

Zinnia in the Texas garden

Zinnia is another stable self-seeder.

Herbs in Texas.

The herbs look awesome on this time of the year. In front Basil, Parsley, Thyme and at the back Tarragon. Lemon balm at the left side. And Milo the Rottweiler.
