|Garden Gal April|
Welcome to spring in the northeast. The temperatures are finally rising upwards into the 50's and 60's and the blooms are starting to pop. We are running approximately two weeks behind this year but the constant covering of snow that we have had all winter has supplied much moisture. The plantings seem to be having a good start.
Inspired by the quote, “We can have flowers nearly every month of the year.” by Elizabeth Lawrence, Carol at May Dreams Gardens hosts Garden Blogger's Bloom Day. On the 15th of every month gardeners from all over the world walk out into their gardens to note what is currently blooming.
Lets start the tour!
One of my favorite spring flowering trees is Prunus subhirtella "Pendula' or Weeping Cherry. It is now beautifully displaying its blooms in Mid-April.

The Coral bark Maple is starting to show signs of life. Each day the buds grow larger and the branches display a pinkish hue against the afternoon sky.
