hi everyone--things are busy but I wanted to share a few photos of our japanese magnolia in the process of blooming. We had to leave home during one of my favorite weeks of spring (for the best of causes--my little sister's wedding!) so I took these photos to remind me of what is going on in our front yard while we're away.
I should add that we mostly landscape with native plants, like good "green" gardeners, but this is one out-of-towner we really enjoy. How do your gardens grow?
