To date, our “gardening” has consisted mostly of hacking down things that get out of control and getting lucky with a few “voluntaries“. One such volunteer that I’m particularly thrilled with is this one:
I recently learned it’s a flowering almond shrub. More pics here! For the last few years, I’ve looked forward to seeing those pretty pink powder puff flowers show up. It’s not in a good spot, though. Where it is now, its branches can scratch our car as we back out. It’s a keeper, but we’re moving it.
Here they are leaned against the fence. We’ll be figuring out exactly where we’ll put them and then planting them hopefully this weekend.
One of them is already blooming, giving us a little taste of things to come!
More pics to come as we work on it.
