Spring’s a Comin’

February 23, 2012

What an unfortunate pruning job to a pretty tree (or bush?).

I was surprised to notice yesterday that the badly pruned tree in our front yard is blooming! Oh so pretty and pink. Any idea what it might be called? Hopefully this is just the start of the flowers, and they will continue to bloom as my daffodils come up. These beauties are just the motivation I need to start the seeds for my garden this weekend.  A little tip for fellow gardeners: I read in the March issue of Martha Stewart Living that a great place to start your seeds is on top of the fridge! It’s consistently warm up there, which is just what seeds need to germinate. Then once they sprout you can move the trays to a window or grow light. Happy sowing!
