Last night we got rain and we got wind; here we didn’t get any tornadoes, happily. Pollen and redbud blossoms floated on the pickup bed’s pond…until I drained it.
This Acer palmatum is aggressively moving towards summer mode, just 5/6 days after spring began.
Also, by my observation, today is day one of what I seem to recall is the approximately three-day push-to-bloom of the azaleas…when they really open in force…. Bushes everywhere in the neighborhood were half open or, more commonly, covered in fat buds that will open…tomorrow?
