There are some heartwarming and oh-so-welcome sights in the newly planted garden. Some of the new plants are showing soft, plump buds – and in one case, the first FLOWERS! (Though you have to look closely to see those).
The luscious little upward facing ovals in a few months will be dancing white and sparkling against the blue sky.
And also the Witch Hazel. Jelena, with its copper colored flowers is actually flowering a little as well as being covered with clusters of fuzzy, pale, pale gray-yellow buds.
