The chinese fringe bushes are not quite as spectacular as they were, but the dogwood is now in full bloom. It's almost funny how much it looks like it did a few months ago, when it was covered in snow. Also, the ground cover in the flower bed near the patio has sprouted beautiful purplish-blue flowers.

The backyard azaleas are not quite blooming, but the ones in the front yard are spectacular. We didn't know what colors we had until a couple of weeks ago. Most of them are white, to my disappointment, but by the front door there are some pink and purple ones. Unfortunately, the bushes in the front are weedy and uneven in size after several years of neglect. As soon as they stop blooming I'll attack them with my shears and force them into conformity.
