The big Easter event is here.

Every year we host many family and friends for an Easter garden party.  This year we have 45 people coming, (Our biggest) I been getting the garden ready for the last two weeks and my wife and daughters have been cooking for the last couple of days.  The weather is cooperating; the forecast is for a sunny day and temperatures in the low eighties.   This is my favorite event of the year, perfect for a garden party.  The weather is pleasant, the mosquitos are not here yet and the flowers are blooming
Blooming this week in the garden:
The Mexican Flame Vine.

The white and pink Angel’s Trumpet trees.

All the bougainvillea’s in containers.   
The Butterfly Bush.
Visitors to the garden this week:
The shy Cat Bird, I was lucky to be at the right place and the right time with a camera.  They are one of my favorite birds; they spend the winter in Florida and summers up north.  These birds love to take a bath and play in garden’s water fountains, they are fascinating to watch.
There are many Monarch butterflies around the Mexican Flame vine.  These flowers not only attract Monarchs, but also many Zebra butterflies and lots of bees.
We had a large number of Dragonflies flying around the garden this week.
I hope you all have a HAPPY EASTER

Beautiful garden! Spring time is fantastic, isn't it? Our Mexican Flame Vine is done with flowers for now, but I loved the show while it lasted. We even had a few swallowtails visiting it this time.

Happy Easter!
