The Blooms of Early Spring


Although today has started off cold and chilly (I actually had to turn the heat on), the weather belies the warmth we've had the past few weeks. The azaleas are beginning to make their annual appearances while the Redbud, Bradford pears and Japanese magnolias are already in full bloom.

With so many blooms around us, there's almost no excuse not to have beautiful (even free) arrangements in your house. Of course I am not suggesting you walk over to Forsyth Park with your clippers or perhaps "lean in" on your neighbor's yard with your hedge cutters. On the contrary, look for branches and twigs and other buds that create a simple, almost Ikebana type of arrangement.

Certain flowering trees and shrubs often benefit from early spring pruning and the trimmings not only stimulate the plants' growth but also can decorate your home. (Note: Do be careful to follow pruning instructions carefully as there are different seasons and techniques for various plants.)
