4-27-16 SHORT HILLS: We’ve finally had some rain, several showers during the day yesterday, some with thunder. I was in and out of the yard depending on the dryness or wetness of the air.
I did manage to get two dogwood trees planted, also in the area where we lost the big ash tree. Their full names are Cornus florida ‘Cherokee Brave’ and ‘Cherokee Princess’. I mulched all the new trees, did some re-fertilizing, found some more unused flagstones and added them to the new walk, but didn’t set them in the ground yet.
New blooms: nannyberry viburnum, Korean spice viburnum, wild strawberry, French lilac, Carolina allspice, wood hyacinth, honeysuckle bush [red and white], burning bush.
