Bloom update

This is the sweet bay magnolia (get it? in honor of the Sweet Bay = Keil Bay) and its very first bloom as of yesterday. Two out of three of the trees I planted last fall are getting ready to bloom this spring and this is the furthest along. I’ll check it today and post the bloom when it happens.

And I’m enthralled with the sundrops. They get more and more interesting as they mature. An entire new batch of flowers are coming in, and the contrast in colors between the bright yellow, maroon stems, and new buds is absolutely gorgeous.

If you want something really interesting with this bright yellow pop, I highly recommend these. I also caught a bee enjoying the pollen.
