Wow! Spring!!!!! or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Posted on: April 7, 2010

Wow, those early bloomers have sprung to life. Lot's happening right now and I can't hope to mention them all. I love to see those Magnolia blooms. Also, although I love to see them, the pear/cherry blossoms seem to kick my immune system into overdrive. Unfortunately lots of pests are kicking into action now too. Look out for Spruce Spider Mites and Boxwood Psyllid; their eggs have hatched. Gypsy Moth and Azalea Lace Bug eggs will be hatching soon and Leafminer adults will soon be emerging.
