Spring has Sprung
So far I just planted oregano, rosemary, and mint. I still need chives, lavender, and thyme. Grow, grow, grow.
It's fun watching bulbs come up and trees bloom. These colors are just out of this world.
We had a twig of a Magnolia at the old house that was only a few year old and would get about 10 blossoms a year if we are lucky. This Magnolia in the front yard is deliciously full of pink buds.
And is this a Star Magnolia? Not sure, but it sure looks awesome! Unfortunately it is being horribly stunted by a pruned to death Douglas Fir that will have to come down. Maybe I will be able to coax it into something resembling a real tree.
