Cherry Blossoms

Sunday was absolutely gorgeous, sunny and warm, and the Morris Arboretum was teeming with people out to enjoy the spring blossoms. Still, Mr. Z and I had this cherry tree and the blue sky above all to ourselves for a little while.

I know it’s not a native tree but it’s simply stunning, isn’t it?

The folks from Yellow Springs Farm are coming today to consult on my yard and develop a landscape plan for me. Yay! Native landscape at home, manicured arboretum next town over…so much gardening joy. I love spring!

UPDATE: they were here! and a full-fledged plan is in the works!

    I have spring all year cos its an equatorial climate here. Do gardening anytime of the year. I have an unusual palm that looks very much like the self destructing palm discovered in Madagascar last year. Blooms once in 40 years, then dies. It was named Tahina spectabilis, not sure if its the same. Can your gardening skills help, pix in my post.
