April Showers Brought May Flowers

The new 5-way cherry has blooms on all 5 varieties: Montmorency, Early Burlat, Kristin, Rainier, and Lapin. Wouldn't it be cool if we could get at least a couple cherries to taste the very first year?

I had to try and capture the beauty of our Clematis montana which grows up about 15 feet into our big maple. The pale pink blooms just hang in long garlands from the branches - so beautiful.

The sugar snap peas are finally taking off (yes, they are trellised inside old tomato cages). I think it was less a light issue (they are in the shady backyard beds) than a warmth issue. Once the temps hit the upper 60s then 70s, they started growing in front of our very eyes!
