Happy Days!

Making my heart sing!
 A little Japanese maple from my friend Mary Lee made it through the awful drought and leaf-buds are breaking out.
 The first asparagus tip has broken through!

The late jonquils are celebrating their new location.
 Radishes and leaf lettuce under way in the asparagus bed.
 The crazy shrub with two colors of blooms is back at it.  I don't know a name other than 'loropetalum' for this. 
The redbud is just beginning its colorful show.
 And vinca lights up the shady spots!


  1. It looks so good to me, buried under a foot or so of snow here. :( But, spring will happen here too if I can wait long enough.

  2. Similar activity going on in Asheville too, but I'm not sure we can go ahead and plant radishes here yet. What zone are you in?

    1. We are officially in 7B. It may be a little early, but usually things just sit and wait for it to warm up if it gets chilly. (It is definitely chilly this week!)
