Spring in Michigan

Good morning.
It's been a very busy week at the Salon. And I've also hit the flower pot jackpot. I've been asking customers all week for any pots they might have and yesterday one said she thought she had a mess of them in her garage. She said she'd call me when she got home if she did and I could pick them up. Well she called, and not only did she have a bunch, her neighbor also had a bunch, and so did another across the street! So after work today, I'll pick them up on the way home. That should give me enough to finish my dividing for my sale.
Also spring has burst forth here in Michigan. Flowering trees and bushes galore!
Here's some from my yard....

A flowering Crab Apple above, and a flowering Patio Peach below.

This beauty is called a Rose Tree of China. The flowers remind me of Flowering Almond, but the flowers are larger and the bush is currently about 9 ft tall and as wide.

A cute leathery leafed plant called Bergenia.
And finally tulips.
If I get out of work early enough today, I hope to divide more plants as the weekend isn't looking good. Forecast is for rain and temps only in the 50's. Oh well, I really do need to clean the house also. We'll see.
Have a great weekend!


  1. I love the Rose Tree of China. I could send you a million pots. I need to clean out our garage. They accumulate fast!
