Today, things are happening all over, like nothing I've ever seen.
This clematis vine was pretty scraggly and having a hard time of it last year. I had cut the dead bits out, and what was left was a foot or two tall, and pretty sad looking. Here it is today: ready to bloom and reaching for the sky.
This is the peony, a plant that resembles an alien plant during many phases of its life-cycle. A few weeks ago this was barely a few purple buds peeking out of the mulch.
And this is the lovely magnolia. So pretty!
In the back things have been popping up, too. This is a little hosta I thought was a goner never to be seen again when it was run over by a backhoe. Guess not.
