They are only now unfurling their leaves and the flower buds will follow. Within a week or so I'll observe a show like above. Today my gardening/birding/day trip pal Carroll and I are heading to a great nursery about an hour away in search of spring happiness. Have a lovely SPRING DAY, everyone and Ya'll come back now, ya hear?

Wildlife Management folks and some Master Gardeners call the Red Buckeye a "trash tree." I beg to differ. These lovely small trees can be canopied up or pruned as a shrub, and they attract Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds. My bank is filled with them and they are harbingers of Spring.
