I hope you can see how yesterday’s heat – 88 degrees – is making the forsythia bloom as it never has before. We also have a lot of wind which is drying, but blossoms keep coming.
All of a sudden the wild cherry trees in the chicken yard have burst into bloom.
Last year we gambled on this weeping cherry, bought at Home Depot where I do not buy many plants, and it came through the winter and just started to bloom.
More and more daffodils are coming into bloom. These are planted under the Miss Willmott white lilac. Her buds are amazingly big for this time of year.
While I was pruning deadwood out of the blueberries yesterday I saw that this primrose, bought years ago at the supermarket, is still thriving – and in bloom. The sunny shades of daffodils and primroses are so heartening in the spring.
Violets, blue and white, have joined the dandelions in my flowery mead – I mean the lawn – and there is more green on every tree and shrub. No more flannel sheets!
