Bloom is on the rose
Stepping onto my terrace today, I couldn't help but notice the spring flowers beginning to bloom. The hyacinths are spent, but our roses, columbine and butterfly weed are waking up after a long winter. Even the hydrangea shows signs of flowering to come. It feels as if it's too early, but, hey, it's already May.
We won't plant the impatience in our window boxes for a couple of weeks yet, but it's nice to see the perennials making their way back for another season.
We did notice an infestation of tiny green flies on one of our rose bushes last weekend. We quickly pulled out the Shultz Insect Spray and haven't seen those bugs since.
