My colorful garden today! Zone 10, don't forget!

I picked up a few more colorful snapdragons this afternoon, and suddenly I was swarmed with birds! I was looking out the kitchen window a few minutes ago and saw a male and female cardinal, a blue jay, 2 cowbirds, and about 4 little birds that looked like swallows with gray tops and yellow bellies. I had to go out and take pics of the garden flowers because it is the most colorful it has ever been, I believe!

Hope you enjoyed my little garden! Remember, if you live where it is freezing cold right now, this is our growing season down here! If you are having snow, ice and bad storms right now, I hope my pictures will make you think of how close spring is for you!!!
Loads of love,
Julie

Your little garden is a sight for this woman's winter sore eyes. I am so tired of brown and white. It is good that you shared your garden.

We're not quite in winter... got up to 74 today, but were still waiting for spring. You're tire garden is, as always, fascinating.
