First things first: The Queen has arrived--the first blossom of our climbing First Prize has bloomed and she is magnificent. Next day she was followed by the first blossom of the tree peonies which I promptly picked to put in our guest bathroom. Then this morning, boom, overnight there were almost a dozen more! The apple and pear blossoms are holding strong with no rain or wind to knock their delicate blossoms off. The magnolia and camellias are at the last of their bloom, and the wisteria is just starting up. We expect to have a great show on Easter. It's magic when Easter week and the wisteria decide to show up at the same time. The hardy spring flowers, the begonias and nasturtiums are looking great and the tomatoes are growing fast with our warm, spring days. The hills are green, the sky is blue. I simply love this time of year.
