Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Foliage Followup, March, 2015 -- Be-Leaf in Me

I love this time of year in the garden -- spring in general, but early spring in particular -- when deciduous shrubs start to leaf out again. It's like a magic trick.

Hydrangea quercifolia -- still has last year's leaves, we had such a mild winter

Viburnum trilobum 'Red Wing'

Hamamelis x intermedia 'Jelena'  -- with its spidery flowers starting to curl up, and the new leaves just starting to emerge

Cornus sericea 'Arctic Fire'

Spirea japonica 'Magic Carpet'

Sambucus nigra 'Black Beauty'
