Spring in Sacramento - Pink Azalea

Pin It

I was away from my garden on the first day of Spring, but found this perfect specimen of an azalea in my son's Sacramento front yard.  To me, they look as though they are made of spun sugar.

I can see from the garden blogs I follow that spring is bustin' out all over!  And even though it is still in the mid to high 50s in my garden, the greenhouse thermometer says it was 82-degrees farenheit in there at 5 o'clock this afternoon.  I can't put off sowing the tomatos any longer.

Happy gardening!

I've been remiss about answering comments. My apologies.
Alas, no tomatoes have been sown yet. The greenhouse still needs cleaning, it's been raining, and I seem to have no time. Arrrg!
Thank you Noelle, Joy, and Makiko for always visiting my blog. I appreciate you!
