What's in Bloom? Mid-March 2008

One of the best times to be in the South is in early spring, when much of the country is still socked in with snow. I love it when it is warm enough to be outside all day!

A beautiful afternoon to prune summer-flowering shrubs like buddleigh and crepe myrtle, remove the brown stems and dried flowers from last year's mums, lemon balm, and autumn joy sedum, and glory in the new spring flowers! I also made a new spring mailbox flag to go with the pansies.
