Happy Friday! For those of you in a deep freeze or still covered in snow, I sharing some spring flowers!
Our March was warm and mild but with April’s arrival has been blustery and cold. Another freeze is in the forecast this weekend with temperatures dipping down in the 20s.
Azaleas are in bloom. . .
Dear Mother Nature:
It’s cruel to send a frost with long-awaited buds and blooms on the shrubs and trees.
Our Chinese Snowball Viburnum is starting to fill out with giant snowballs. . .
The only snowballs you want to see in April!
The hydrangea-like blooms start out green, changing over to cream and then white. It’s also ideal to enjoy as a cut flower.
You can see her in full bloom last year for nesting season, here.
We’re going to try to drape her with some sheets to keep her buds and blooms from being frost nipped. . .wish us luck.
And Bridalwreath Spirea is blooming. . .
A low-maintenance shrub with arching branches of double white blooms!
If you have place to plant Bridalwreath Spirea, you won’t be disappointed.
Hope you’re enjoying some sunshine and warming up soon!
