Happy (belated) Bloom Day, everyone! Here in Central Illinois, zone 5b, the weather has mostly been beautiful. A nice Spring....until just a few days ago. We are in the middle of cold snap and back to wearing heavy clothes and cold toes. We've had a few days of rain, so it is too soggy and cold to plant anything right now. But, I can admire the colors with a warm cup of coffee.
One of my favorite additions are my 3 Magic Carpet Spireas. This is my first Spring with them, and I think they are just showing off.
