A lot of stuff had been blooming in the last few weeks; Dogwoods, Rododendrins, the Magnolia tree and the grass has been growing too.
I found this out the hard way since I volunteered to mow a friends lawn who had moved in up the street a few weeks ago. She is 8 months pregnant, so its not really her thing to do lawn work these days. The picture shows how high the grass grew in a few weeks, almost half as high as Jack.
The blooms of the other plants have been really colorful, its also nice to see after such a dreary winter.
I actually have two kinds of dogwoods in the front, one has these pink blooms and the other has the traditional white blooms, both are looking really nice and healthy.
