Re: pruning my fringe tree. When I bought the tree it was already trained (pruned) to a single trunk. I have pruned it just a little bit. I pruned a couple of lower branches to raise the canopy (however it's still too small to have a real canopy) so that I can mow around it easily. A couple of branches got damaged by high winds so I pruned those. Else I have no plans for further pruning (health of the plant if needed).

I could say I'm lazy so I don't prune much or I could say I'm a certified urban forester so I don't prune much - either way, I don't prune much...

The smallest azalea on the north side of my house finally started blooming yesterday. Oddly enough, the ones in more sun on the eastern and southern sides are ready to bloom but haven't "popped" yet. I'm eagerly awaiting blooms from the large rhododendron in front of the den windows; it's about 7 feet tall now.

Looking forward to rhododendrons too....they bloomed en masse last year but only some will bloom this time.

My two pots of cherry tomatoes are full of blossoms. Several clusters of tomatoes are ripening. Its been cool enough that they are setting fruit like crazy. In past years it has gotten hot so early that the tomatoes pooped out.

Last fall I planted tulip bulbs (mixed colors) in memory of my father who passed away. Just this past week, two of them bloomed - yellow ones. I'm excited for the other ones to bloom and see the various colors.
