Nothing has bloomed as well as normal. The daffodils gave a paltry showing, as did the crocus. Only one branch of the dogwood tree bloomed at all. The Lady Banks Rose has bloomed pleasantly, but not exuberantly. I want exuberant. I want overwhelming. I'm looking for something more than adequate. Not just pretty, but beautiful. Not just nice, but incredible. I'm not asking too much, am I?
Here are some up to date-ish pictures of the front gardens.
