Spring "has sprung" in Saltillo

Let me show you these beautiful flowers in my backyard.

Here's the beautiful red azucena - I just love it.

Just blooming out....



In almost full bloom....


And here's another one coming




Love my aguacate (avocado) plant.


Can't think of the name of this one (in either language). Flower experts, help me out.



My waist high pink geraniums - Spanish: geranio - (higher actually with the new blooms) and very tall bamboo. This photo doesn't show how deep pink the blooms really are, or of course, how tall the bamboo is. It's twice as tall as my back yard wall.



And with all this sun and these beautiful breezes, why throw these jeans in my much-loved dryer? Let's take advantage of what we have. :) I do have clotheslines but they were full. :) So goes life with 3 boys.


Hope you've enjoyed this taste of spring - I know I am.

Melodie-
Of course your floral post caught my eye! It feels like spring here in Indiana today with upper 70's temps. I'm sure it will cool off again soon.

I think you have an iris. Not sure if it is a Siberian Iris or not--they are smaller blooms. Everything looks beautiful. It is so nice that you have a pretty place to live.

Your flowers are so pretty. I love that red one. And of course, the bamboo is awesome!

I love those geraniums! They're beautiful.

As always, I enjoy hearing how God is using your family in Mexico. If I ever get a valid passport (and US citizenship), I'm planning to talk my husband into a trip south of the border!

That floower that you did not know the name of is Iris. Or at least it looks like it to me. Very pretty flowers.

Love your flowers! I guessed the purple one to be an iris as well, but I'm not great with flower names. Liked the photo of your makeshift "clothesline".
