My little Dogwood tree is blooming! For those of you in other areas this might not seem so extraordinary but here it is very special. This little tree has struggled mightily to bloom in my inhospitable zone 9-10 garden.I mail ordered it a few years ago because I think that Dogwood trees are very beautiful and although it's growth has been slow, it is now about four feet tall, every year it consistently puts out more and more blooms. This year, perhaps because of all the rain is the best yet, and along with my little friends that you see here I am enjoying each and every flower.
Do you have any plants in your garden that really don't belong there but you try to grow? I suffer from a bad case of Peony envy. I keep hoping that someone will hybridize a Peony that requires less chill to bloom, but so far no luck. Oh how I long to have peonies
