Lately it seems every time I have a moment to go out in the garden, it's raining. By the same token, the sun comes out when I'm sitting behind my computer at work. So I had some visual catching up to do this afternoon as I wandered around the garden. Let me share some of what I saw.
Gardening with Grace, posted this week about her crabapple. My image of our young malus 'Prairifire' can't rival her gorgeous pictures (take a look!), but I have been thrilled by the intense, dark pink flower/foliage combination out our dining room window. We planted Prairifire to screen us from the big house across the street, and it's already doing the job of stopping the eye in the most beautiful way.
