Our Blooming Peach Tree
Our Peach Tree - young and already looking gnarly... We found an old, dried up peach from last year still clinging to one branch ..
The weather yesterday was too beautiful to stay indoors -- warm, sunshiney -- so I just HAD to sit in the spring weather for just a bit of time.
Despite the dips we've had in temperature, our forsythia continues to bloom, as does our peach trees, flowering quince, and even our saucer magnolia. The red/green leaves of the crab apple are emerging, and there's new growth in the ornamental grasses and perennials herbs. In our walk around the neighborhood yesterday, we saw daffodils in the middle of now-woodlands - evidence of former dwellings and how the land and its use has changed over time.
I'm still coughing and congested -- seems there's a lot of that going around ... stay well! And have a great Monday
