That is lovely! Doesn't it make you feel so good to bring something so close to the compost heap to life???

Corkscrew Weeping Willow


It is so enjoyable to watch something come back to life. I planted this last August. I didn't think it was still alive but left it over winter and now it's coming back beautifully!Attachment 1537

I always grab there 6 packs of Marigolds for .99. They flower out so pretty still. Going to the store today to see what's new. Let see some before and after shots.
