There is lots to see, so get out and start looking around - I find these tiny buds and blooms even more interesting than the leafed-out plant.
First off, the rose by the front door decided to go green in the past two days:
|Rose - Apr 11|
|Liberty elm - Apr 11|
The forsythia, as could be expected, is all ready to burst into its yellow extravaganza:
|Forsythia - Apr 11|
I have lots of different viburnums (viburnae?), but this is the most interesting bud I saw:
|Mohawk viburnum - Apr 11|
|Weeping Katsura - Apr 11|
The sedum, with its warm spot next to the brick wall, seems to be further along than most things:
|Sedum - Apr 11|
The cherry trees are getting ready to get all pink; my cherry blossom festival is a week or so away yet, I think:
|Cherry - Apr 11|
And last, but not least, my red maple is working very hard to get ahead of the rest of his fellow trees:
|Red maple - Apr 11|
My apologies to the purists who would like to see the latin names for all these, but I would rather you just enjoy the mysterious re-creation of all these plants in the spring! To coin a phrase - What's in your garden?
