*******************************************

The Automatic Garden has had many plants blooming during this mild winter, which have kept the Rufous Hummingbirds happy.  Quite a few of the white flowers are currently blooming.  All have been in the garden for many years with the exception of of the Pirate’s Pearl which was added late last summer and has exceeded expectations.
