My garden must be Irish 'cause it's wearin' the green
The angel's trumpets are sending up green shoots.
The Turk's caps are coming back strong with lots of green.
The beautyberries are putting out tentative green buds.
Split-leaf philodendrons are greening up, too.
'Texas Star' hibiscus grows greener every day.
'Leatherleaf mahonia' which bloomed all winter is now loaded with these bluish green seeds.
Even the snowball viburnum's buds, not quite fully blooms yet, are green.
Of course, the anole always wears his green - except when he's passing as brown.
Everything in my garden is green today, except...
...the shamrocks (oxalis), which are purple. Guess they don't have to prove their Irishness!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
