Sometimes just for fun or sometimes to rescue them from a spring downpour, I continue to make mini bouquets such as this one of daffodils in a cordial glass. I like to bring the outside inside especially for the days the weather grows harsh and it is once again necessary to be inside instead of the garden.
.I love to go anywhere there are plants for sale at this time of year when the nurseries are chocked full of various plants in an array of sizes. I found one gallon Japanese Maples at Home Depot for 15 dollars. They had several varieties: Tamukeyama, Crimson Queen, I bought Bloodgood.
I am tickled that the weeping cherries planted last year made it through the hot summer and are blooming. Tickled pink, you might say. 🙂
Two mature ornamental peach trees light up the area with hot pink. The white dogwoods just beginning blooming will probably be in their glory next week. The order of bloom for familiar flowering trees is: Bradford pear, star magnolia, saucer magnolia, cherry, crabapple, peach, redbud, dogwood.
Grass is active enough to make mowing necessary. The hum of lawn mowers is a common sound lately. Green… I can’t get enough.
It’s just weird seeing the moon in a bright blue sky.
