2. I just planted my first African daisy plants and the rain almost drowned them!
3. The bowl of succulents sits on the porch, but close enough to the edge that the rain saturated the soil and brightened up the hen-and-chicks. Succulents are a new plant for me this year; hopefully, these are ones that will "winter over."
4. This white hawthorn tree is loaded! It doesn't smell very good, but the honeybees love it, and I love honeybees. Any tree that blooms is covered in blossoms this spring. A warmer, wetter spring must be the reason. (It's also almost a month early!)
5. It's flip-flop season and 7-year-old Kennedy is sporting some jeweled ones. I'm wearing flip-flops now, but I don't photograph by own ugly feet.
