So many bushes and plants are blooming in my yard. It seems that April is the major bloom month here in the desert. Most of the bushes and plants I've never had before, but I have heard of them. Red Yucca is entirely new to me with its long spikes bearing red flowers. I have learned it is not a true yucca and is native to southwest Texas. It's a real standout when planted en masse. I have this in the front yard along with dwarf pink Oleander bushes. The Oleanders are green all year and bloom till fall.

I don't know the variety of the Pittosporum bushes that line the back of the house, but they remain green all year, and the flowers which just appeared have no fragrance. There are other plants and bushes in the yard. There will be photos of those in the next post.
