Louisiana Garden Flowers and Woodpecker, April 2015
Spring is a special time in Louisiana. It’s when the first flowers shoot up towards the sky after a long winter. I love the showy purple Louisiana Iris.
The bottlebrush makes a bright red spot in the spring.
The azaleas always put on a display.
The lush purple color of the Iris my favorite.
The fragrance of the climbing grape wisteria is a favorite, too.
Best of all, is a bird not a flower. This woodpecker has had a feast on our old, dead tree.
Here’s his breast side.
We enjoy watching him dart and peck from our kitchen window.
