After a seemingly never ending winter, I'm happy to announce my blooms have begun!

These are always the first to bloom. (Unknown variety)

Looking good Lindsay!

"Magical Michigan" sounds like a good tourism slogan. Big Grin I grew up with "Winter Water Wonderland", now it's "Pure Michigan". "Magical Michigan" would work well.

Blueberry Tart is getting ready to open. We are supposed to get bad storms, so I thought I'd photo in case of damage.

I looked it up. John Burton, Lucy's husband, is the hybridizer. Thumbs up No wonder it is lovely. Both Lucy and John have created some real beauties. Smiling
