It’s that time of year.
I cannot resist taking hundreds of fresh floral shots.
We may have had the most mild winter on record, but I still could not wait for fresh flowers.
The really cool thing about my snowball bush is that it has a history.
My Granma Amy had one planted on her farm in the early 1940’s.
My Mom made a cutting from that old shrub in the 1970’s.
I made a cutting from my my Mom’s about 10 years ago.
I have Granma Amy’s snowball bush in my front yard.
So, this illustrates how the old heirloom varieties are better.
Both were planted the same year.
