Happy Earth Day. It’s a day to celebrate the Earth and all that she gives us, like this gentle, soaking rain we so need here in the magical Mid-Atlantic. Everything is so green! The trees are smiling.
I showed an earlier photo of the Chinese Snowballs, Viburnum macrocephalum, in their green stage, before they whitened up. Here they are in full, glorious bloom, and the rain enhances the effect. They’ve been in bloom now for many days.
