Or Texas - whichever you prefer! LOL It's been a cold spring here but we haven't been bothered with much below freezing weather at least, so things have continued to grow and bloom in spite of the chilly temps and SO MUCH WIND.

Even here in coastal GA, the chill is still in the air....48 at 7:00am this morning. It gets so ungodly hot here in the summer that i try not complain now..

The Stella d’Oros are just coming out, the buds are swelling on the newly planted rhododendron, and several perennials are blooming. Buddlea and clematis are out and the evergreen daylillies on the south side of the house are starting to send up flower stalks. Blueberries are on the bushes. I’ll probably let the birds have them this year, since I only had about a cupful last year.

The two big banana plants did die this winter, but 4 little pups have spring up. Life springs eternal.

In my backyard, the peaches, plums, the nectarine, the pear, and the sweet cherries have all started to bloom or are in full swing.
The male cherry trees with their big pink flowers are starting to bud.
Northern VA (ie. crazy weather)

My Arbequina olive tree blossomed last month. The tree is three years old and this is the first year it has flowered and set fruit.

What's blooming in your yard now...?-03ec2412-455b-4acd-8211-602b398c2462.jpeg

On the next street over, a very exciting thing is happening. Two Century plants are getting ready to bloom. I imagine they must be about 30 years old, since that is the age of the neighborhood.
I plan to take some pictures of them, and will post them if I do.
