monday green

I'm playing catch-up today, in a good way! I was reading resurrection fern's blog {as always her pictures are beautiful and inspiring, please check them out!} and she had a link to poppytalk's Spring Colours Week 2011.
It's a whole week of colors.
Monday - green
Tuesday - yellow
Wednesday - pink
Thursday - lavender (maybe a challenge)
Friday - white

Any excuse to use my new camera {my honey of a husband got me...hehe!}. I'm playing catch up on Monday since I am now posting those pictures. For green Monday I decided to post on some of my returning plants.
My pomegranate bush, non-fruit bearing, has tiny little leaves full of reds and greens. Only wish it would actually give fruit I love pomegranates, they stain your clothes but taste great with a bit of salt and lemon juice. There is also a recipe...somewhere in my dad's head that involves grain alcohol, pecans and pomegranates and a few days in the dark...the mixture not me...haha! to make a cocktail drink. I may be missing somethings so don't try it at home...
Also, a surprise for me the Lilly of the valley is getting ready to bloom. This weekend I started to pull all the dead stuff away when the weather was gorgeous and didn't get very far because right before I was weeding and pulling grass from the vegetable garden which I did finish. The smell of Lilly of the valley always reminds me of Florida because of a scented lotion I used on a trip there. Funny how scents bring back memories. Maybe they will bloom in time for Friday white...hehe!
