Today, for the first time, I am joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.

Cathy posts, every Monday, a vase with flowers from her garden. And she invites other bloggers to link up.

And, of course, now that spring is here there will definitely be something fresh every Monday.
I will try to post on a regular schedule for this theme although with gardening weather here you may find me outside instead of at the computer…

This week it’s all about pink:

Should it be the Kwanzan:


or the Yoshino?


They are similar in growth habit; one has pinker flowers, one whiter; one has an almond scent in early spring; both are fairly disease resistant; both are fairly fast growers.
We NEED this tree to shade our front door area from the hot hot hot Western sun, so the sooner we get it planted the better.

And for some more cheery “pinkness”, take a look here:

Spring is coming, believe it or not!
