Last year at this time, I was traveling on the East Coast. In North Carolina, the roses were in full bloom. Funny enough with this spring we’re having, my roses are just about ready to open!
Clematis is open and climbing, and the tulips are near done. This year has caught the stores by surprise. Yesterday I went out to look for annuals and found the pickings to be slim. Give them a week or two and plan your summer planting a weekend down the line, you’ll be happier with the selection. With that said, enjoy the perennials in bloom now and our warm weather!
