We've only just had the equinox and already it's acting like Spring. The trees are leafed out, the dogwoods are blooming, the daffodils have come and gone, the grass is growing. It seems way too early for all these things to be happening. We didn't get much of a winter. A few really crazy cold days but mostly not bad. I don't like the cold so I don't mind.
This was a quick tour of the yard this afternoon.
|Vinca major or periwinkle|
|Lorapetalum. A large open shrub with purple foliage and these fringy flowers .|
|My Bloodgood Japanese maple. I love this tree. It was planted years ago and has loved the spot I put it in from the very beginning.|
|Native red honeysuckle growing up a trellis|
|Thrift or creeping phlox. Pale blue flowers.|
|The dogwoods in the backyard. White clouds everywhere.|
