    1. isn't it though? something new every day! today i found new leaves on the golden pineapple sage...wasn't sure if it would make it through the winter since i hadn't grown that cultivar before, but, yay!, it did!

  3. That means it's time to prune roses - at least in the Charlotte area (:

  4. Beautiful! I think the act of budding and leafing out is such a beautiful transition, and you have demonstrated it here so perfectly.

    1. now the trick is not getting in too much of a hurry with putting things out! the last frost date is usu. april 15 here, but there's always that small chance that it will be a few weeks earlier...

    2. Think it is April 10 for us. It is hard not to jump the gun!
