Not a particularly F&FF-worthy photo, but this tree! Weeping Scotch Laburnum/alpine laburnum/alpine golden chain or rain (I like that last). Is it possible it has bloomed like this every year, and I never noticed it? It hums with unseen, but hard working bees. Spring this year is extraordinary. So much I wish I could tell my mom. So I do. Maybe she hears.
Look what’s blooming for the first time in the garden where my mother said nothing will grow, otherwise known as “The Garden Where Nothing Will Grow.” I planted bulbs here maybe three years ago, and this is the first time it’s bloomed. A favorite of my mother’s. The coincidences continue.
