Replace poorly performing Rose of Sharon
April 1st and 2nd

The shrub with a lean is a Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus) that came up from the stump after being cut off by the former owner. It has never bloomed properly - it forms buds which either fall off or only open part way. We have another Rose of Sharon on the other side of the yard and we miss having a forsythia that blooms early in the spring - so out with the old, in with the new!

Meantime, the second wave of spring flowers is starting. We have hyacinths in several places.

They come in several colours too.

It was a bright sunny day, but three or four brief hail storms passed through. All melted minutes later.

The small forsythia has now replaced the Rose of Sharon.

We have a few daffodils blooming too. They are more resistant to the deer than tulips which we've already covered with wire cages in the hopes of getting blossoms.
