The bottom of the windows in my living room are about chest high. Therefore, if you are sitting, about all you can see is sky or the distant tops of trees. So I planted a Redbud right smack in front of the middle of my front porch where I can see the blooms in the spring and it can shade the front during the hot part of the summer.
Right now, it is blooming beautifully and has a beautiful granddaughter in it. I wanted her to go higher, but she refused. I have three more across the back of the property, but the only time I see them is when I drive in to park.
This is one of my Clematis. I cut it back pretty good early in the spring so it would have time to grow some length before it began to bloom. You can't see the buds in the photo, but there are about 20 on it. It should be really pretty very soon.
Do you have proof that Spring has sprung? I hope so.
I hope you are having a great Tuesday. Pray for the miners and their families both in China and West Virginia. Love one another.
