The butterfly garden has started to bloom: zinnias, salvia, gaillardia in tones of red and orange, blumbago in light blue. The Muhly grass will bloom purple in fall. It looks like the coral honeysuckle in the background is growing but not doing much blooming yet.

The pond is rainwater collected in an old clay pit. The clay was exported to Europe, but this business never really took off. The next adventures were citrus trees, many of them killed in a series of cold snaps, some have survived. Before the "active adults over 55" moved in, the area was pasture land for wild looking cracker cattle. Our house is the first white spot from the left.
