Signs of Spring!

Ahh, winter seems to be winding down now. We worked outside on Saturday and today, pruning, weeding and fertilizing. Once we finished pruning the crape myrtle, we cut the long, strappy branches into shorter lengths and tied them into manageable armloads. We filled up the back of our van and carted them off to the county vegetative waste dump. Next time, maybe we shouldn’t wait three years to do the pruning. Our job would be much easier.

Our winter daphne is in bloom and scenting most of the patio.

Daffodils are popping up all over town; some have actually blossomed, but mine have not.

And our Okame cherry is in full bloom…beauty in pink blossoms.
