It’s time once again to follow up on my tree, the Retama, Parkinsonia aculeata, and to participate with Lucy and her Tree Following meme at Loose and Leafy. This past month started chilly and slowly with little tree action by the Retama.
….the Retama stood in this past month as a silent sentinel, awaiting its particular breath of spring.
Continuing its role as a favorite bird perch,
…this Northern Mockingbird, Mimus polyglottos, surveyed his realm and sung for me on a grey, cold day, early in March.
In the last couple of weeks though,
Welcome to spring, a new growing season for Retama, and a hearty huzzah for newby foliage!
