The calendar says it's still March but nobody told the trees and flowering plants. This year our trees are at least a month early. Our Crepe Myrtle which doesn't usually wake up till May is already leafed out.
We're loving all the beautiful flowering trees. These Crabapples opened last weekend.
This is my confused Crabapple tree. For reasons unknown, someone grafted a branch of a different type tree onto this sapling and now we have this interesting mixture of flowers and different sized fruit later in the summer.
This is my favorite. This is a Kwanzan Cherry. I love the bunches of pink flowers.
There are lots of these trees at the Baltimore Inner Harbor. That's where I first saw them and I needed some for my yard. So far I only have one, but that's going to change.
The Vinca around the front steps is in bloom. This even grows under the porch so if you need a good shade plant. It spreads like crazy, so plan ahead.
Norma Jean says it's nice to lie under the trees, but her Mom says it makes one sneeze a lot.
Today for those of you who have asked I'm starting a weekly monitor for Tsar. This past week was a pretty good one after having a not so good one. This week gets an up arrow.
Today he was able to stand up with no help and has been asking to walk around the yard. He has a good appetite and has been barking at the other dogs. Best of all, last night he flushed a bunny out of the hedge and tried to give chase. That'll always pick up a dog's spirits.
