|Japanese Cherry tree in bloom|
Since I spent 2011 and 2012 in Italy during the spring months, I missed being able to see my tulips, daffodils, iris and peonies blooming. I also missed the spectacular show that my cherry and crab trees put on every year. This year I'm happy to be home so I can witness their beauty. After two years of neglecting the yard, I have a lot of work to catch up on and am re-doing or rearranging several areas of the flower and vegetable gardens. It's a work in progress, ma che gioia !
