Here is a bloom from the clematis in the front. It has seen its youth and is a senior citizen, but still very valuable!
This is a flowering shrub in the corner of the front. It has done very well and is sprouting little yellow deals.
Here is the corner of the front flower bed. Behind the flowering shrub is a tree that sprouted on its own. I also planted Eglish Ivy that was supposed to just take off, but after having it for two years, it is taking its time.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this sprout. The blizzard seems to have killed the rosebush that is behind it. This little fellow came out of nowhere the other day and seems to be a fast grower. I continue watering the rosebush behind it in hopes that it will spring to life next year.
This is my crape myrtle that receives the most sun. I do not know why it is not doing as well as the other one. I am surprised that both of them survived as I forgot to water them ALL winter.
This is the crape myrtle directly east of the house. It receives almost a full day of sun, but not quite. It is doing very well.
Here is my lilac tree. We had to transplant it this spring. I am expecting it to be sick for a while. It sprouted early in the spring, but the blooms were killed by the blizzard. So, maybe in my third year of having it I will get to see the blooms.
