Spring is near.


A few pics from my personal garden as the temperatures begin to rise. Enjoy.

Professor Sargent Camellia Japonica
The fragrant blooms of Clematis armandii. I am training this to climb a large pine tree in our backyard.
Golden Dawn Redwood getting ready to reveal its colors in the garden. Also one of the best botanical names - Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Ogon'. This tree will be glowing in the afternoon setting sun each day.
Just another Japanese Maple leafing out in spring.

    I think my favorite part of spring is wandering around the yard looking for the first green buds on all the dead looking branches. I love spring flowers but for me there is something very spiritual about plants waking up each spring. Thanks for the wonderful photos!

    Amazing pictures! I would love to see more of that dawn redwood. I'm am having some trees cut down in my yard (mostly bradford pears) and considering adding a dawn redwood but I cant decide. Seems weird for a fir tree to be deciduous.
