spring really is here



The dogwoods are really out now.  This morning, among the dry grey oaks that haven't leafed yet, the dogwoods form clouds of white.

Our forsythia is done, but the neighbors are still bright yellow. The smaller azaleas are blooming, but the larger formosa types are just beginning to seriously bud. A few white irises are in bloom. The grape hyacinth seem to be just past their peak, I don't think I'll be able to put off mowing over them before the seedheads are set, as I'd prefer. We have company coming next week and the wildflower lawn will have to be trimmed. The first blooms are open on the wisteria. I see several redbuds on the way to work, the bradford pears are now more green than white, and the wild cherries and plums are all over the woods.
