Finally, spring is here. After a horrific winter it's very nice to see some color in the landscape. I'm ignoring the recent heavy rains. I will take them anytime over minus 7 temperatures and snow.
This week I noticed Spireas leafing out and Ribes sanguineum flowering. Yellow Forsythias are hard to miss and clumps of daffodils are actually very cute.
I also got to install a privacy yew hedge this week which was fun!
What did you notice in your garden?
