But I went a bit crazy on Sunday when I saw my crocuses blooming! I took a ton of pictures of my plants, to see what state they were in after this weird (but normal for us) winter weather we've been having.
And the red chokeberry that Thomas helped me plant--remember all these? It's got tiny leaves on it, so that's promising.
Which is a nice segue into a reminder about the Virginia Native Plant Sale coming up on April 27. Go early or you'll miss out!
But then there's my forsythia, which isn't doing anything yet. One year it bloomed in January, usually it is in full bloom in February. All winter a flower would pop out here and there, but right now, I got nothin'. Unless you count the invasive Japanese honeysuckle growing all over it. I tried to get it all off of the forsythia last year, but was unsuccessful.Right now, though, it sticks out like a sore thumb. I wonder if it can hear my pruning shears? I think it might be screaming . . .
And yesterday's weather was just fantastic! What was it like "in your neck of the woods?"
