I have been reading blogs from those who live far south of us and they are talking about peonies getting ready to bloom. Here in my town in Alberta my peonies are just starting to poke out of the ground! Plants are very cautious here! They have been caught in frosty situations.
But on a positive note, the May Day tree and crabapple tree are in full bloom! The scent from the May Day is amazing. When we moved to this house almost 22 years ago it was only about 12 feet tall. Now it has grown up and out and covers a large part of that end of the yard. I’m thinking that we will need to trim back a few of the lower branches so we can navigate with the lawnmower!
The crabapple tree is what I like to think of as our oversize bonsai tree. We chopped it back several years ago to encourage the fruit producing branches to flourish. Consequently the trunk has grown in a twisted manner. It is still beautiful though and every spring puts on a spectacular show.
I’m happy that my website is finally up and running! It has been a few days of trying to get it to launch and I was so excited to be able to see it today! I’m looking forward the journey of all I have in mind!
