I believe in miracles. But maybe what you consider a miracle and what I consider a miracle are two different things. Having grown up in California where not too much goes dormant in the winter, I am always surprised living here in Utah when spring comes and things come to life again. Particularly in my own yard. I don’t have a green thumb, but I try. I’m a sucker for loading my yard with perennials that bloom at different times of the year so that I have color all year long. (Bottom picture is of my last home. But the new owners hated it so they ripped all flowers, perennials, and shrubs.) But for some reason I kill certain plants long before their time. I kill zucchini and squash plants most every year. And sometimes our trees just never come out of dormancy. Like last year our red maple just never came back to life in the spring. So you must know how amazed I am this
year to see my trees in bloom. Here is my Yoshiro Flowering Cherry in bloom. Honestly, with me as the gardener it’s a miracle it’s made it close to two years in my yard. But my Patmore Ash is still dormant……or is it dead? I don't see any buds on it yet. I do believe in miracles, I do, I do, I do.
