Today was a kind of crazy spring day. Cool in the morning, thunderstorms late morning, sunny and warm in the afternoon. I got rained on at the Farmer's Market, then planted a few perennials in the afternoon. Sad news: Gus's Garden Center is going out of business. The flood from last fall was the last straw. They have a great inventory and everything is on sale, so I guess I'll try to take advantage of the low prices in the coming days.
This magnolia is the biggest show right now. I planted a magnolia tree and a magnolia shrub. This is the shrub. The tree will bloom a little later.
The forsythias in the back are also putting on a great show this spring. The first thing I planted when I moved here was a forsythia. Someone came along and stole it. Can you believe it? So, I went out and bought a few more. I actually bought a chain and locked them up.
This was when I first planted them in the spring of 2010. They're growing well!
I hope you are having a colorful spring, too!
