Another warm sunny day, breezy, in the 60s, low 70s. Just beautiful.
The forsythia are now in full bloom everywhere. Stunning! They really are very common, planted just about in every yard, but there is nothing sunnier and no prettier yellow.
The Okame cherry is also at maximum bloom, a really pretty pink. I do despair about its shape:
I also ordered some plants from a nursery called Rarefinds. I have it in my head I want to put great big evergreen rhododendrons at the very top of the hill, in the wooded area right along the road, hopefully to look naturalistic. There's a sort of "saddle" area that dips and is the most exposed to the road. I want screening there (the house across the street leaves a megawatt floodlight on all night that beams into our back windows).
