Time to change from mittens to clotheslines!
Spring is finally here! No more mittens (we hope). Time to start thinking about using our clotheslines and planting our gardens.
We are still working towards moving into our little farmhouse. One nice thing about it is that we will be moving in during early spring. The perfect time of year for dividing and moving plants from the old yard to the new one. The farmhouse was built in the 1940s and I see some promising old fashioned plants that are either dormant for winter or just beginning to come up. So far I know there are crape myrtles, daffodils, nandinas, camellias, daylillies and dogwoods.
There is a bush that already has tiny pinkish red flowers on the bare branches. Does anybody know what the name of this bush is? It doesn't have any leaves yet and has long skinny branches covered in tiny pinkish red flowers. I should know the name of it, but can't think of it!
