Oakleaf hydrangea buds are the size of the first joint of my pinky finger.
Tiny rose buds are visible here and there.
Breadseed poppies have marble-sized buds. Corn poppies are not far behind. California poppies are in various stages including one with more than a dozen open blooms that I displayed yesterday on Seed Scatterer, planted with Bath's Pinks.
Bath's Pink fragrance is deliciously clove-like.
Pentas -- one rose color, one pink. Of course the sprout is green, but I remember where the different pentas grew.
Duranta -- there is only one, so the pieces I rooted over winter will make a collection.
Esperanza -- only one so far that I've seen. It is still early for Tecoma stans.
Tom is right; pecan trees are budding out. More yellow pollen to fall.
The sun is hot like July, which reminds me: once in a while when spring bursts out so hot, we'll have a cool rainy spell in July. I certainly hope so.
