Succulent Stump

This is a nice way to reuse the stump of an old tree in the yard. The plants are well-chosen both in size and color.

More springtime blooms at the nursery. I would like a redbud in the garden if I didn’t already have so many trees.

The wisteria in the back pergola is suddenly throwing out new leaves and leaping into Spring. I missed pruning it while it was dormant I’ll just have to give it a light pruning now untangle a few things and cut back the whip-like new growth.

A striking stand of kniphofia. The bees and hummingbirds were swarming these flowers. Look earlier in my feed for a “Minute in the Garden” video of these same flowers.
