In the spirit of my inner garden paparazzi, I went outside to check out the property this afternoon and discovered many signs of spring.
The grape hyacinth and daffodils are blooming. The flowering quince (known by old schoolers in the South as simply Japonica) is blooming. I really love the color of the blooms. I just wish it would go on all year.
The Spirea and Forsythia are starting to bloom.
The Tulip Trees (variety of magnolia) have gorgeous, large buds. (I noticed that I’ve not yet documented these in Folia.)
The sedum is coming up again with pretty little rosettes.
And there are loads of buds on all the fruit trees. Photo of plum tree buds. But, there are enormous amounts of buds on the pear, elberta peach, red haven peach and nectarine as well.
