Scott Weber: Lovely blooms...I think I wait all year for these brief few weeks when I get to smell Lilacs again...Happy Bloom Day!
Marguerite: hahaha gotta love that Irving :) how fantastic that robins are nesting in the rhodo, what a sight that must be to watch.
Debbie: Mmmm...dogwoods seem to be especially abundant this year here, too. I planted some chives last fall so I'm anxious for them to bloom this spring. They're almost there but not quite yet.
Laurrie: I do love May! Your sentry narcissi are beautiful standing guard. And the lilacs all over are great right now.
We got a hard freeze last night, down to 29 F in my garden, colder than surrounding areas. Yikes.
joenesgarden: Marguerite, my dogwood was very close to becoming history. It saved itself this season by blooming more fully than in previous years. I'm beginning to wonder if it knew the saw was in its future and, as a result, it chose self-preservation.
Marguerite: you are one patient lady! luckily patience pays off, it's a beautiful tree in all seasons.
joenesgarden: Laurrie, that's a funny story. I was about ready to remove mine before I saw this year's blooms. Maybe they sense the frustration of their caretakers and then decide they better bloom or lose!
Laurrie: That poor little dogwood sure seemed to be struggling until the bigger tree was gone. I'm glad it's perking up for you finally. There is nothing like the show of flowering dogwoods right now.
My friend had one that did not bloom for years and years. She finally got out the chainsaw to cut...
