I planted these pansies last spring and they managed to survive the prolonged sub-zero temps we had this winter. They are fuller and prettier than they were the first time around!

Great photo! I tried getting pics of the hundreds of bees flitting around my boxwood bush when it was flowering earlier and ended up with nothing recognizable.

I know what you mean. They're fast! I followed this bee around the tree for quite awhile trying to get it.

Great!

The dogwood must be something of "America's tree" and Major' did a good job capturing its spring beauty with the camera.

Not to try to take it away from any other part of the world ;). I understand that there are dogwoods right across the northern hemisphere. Any dogwoods in the southern, Sumi? Surely, it has found a home as an ornamental ...

Varieties of Major's native dogwoods are the ones in our yards here. I had thought they might be developed from the wild dogwoods, mostly near the Pacific but, no.

A beautiful symbol of spring ..!
