It is warming up and plants are starting to bloom. Tuesday was so nice and warm. Today is rain but that brings us April flowers.
This week the flowering plums and some early cherries are open. I love it when the pink clouds start opening on the hills. Forsythia has added yellow to gray days. The crocuses are just peaking and the early daffodils are now blooming. They are excellent when planted in clumps. The white and red sprays of Pieris is brightening up their evergreen foliage. Adding texture and exoticness to the gardens are the hellebores and Euphorbias. It will be another week for Euphorbia characias wulfenii and Euphorbia myrsinites to be blooming.
