Not only is every flowering tree in bloom or dropping its petals, but other flowers are showing their faces. This is one I saw near my mailbox.

For some reason, I treasure this gazania which sprouted in what's left of my lawn. I won't let the gardener touch it when he mows. I hope it spreads.

A New Crop of Weeds Mingles with Flowers
This iris flower has faded, but its neighbor irises are all budding, so I expect more soon. How fast this flower disappeared, and how quickly new buds appeared. I took this photo five days ago. Today the gardener whacked the tops off these grassy weeds that surround this iris bed. If you look very carefully, you can see the new buds. They are bigger today.
