I travelled to Nashville, NC today to visit with my mom. She has the prettiest yard in the world. Lots of her plants were probably in your grandmother's yard. Her first bloomers of the year are Camellia and Forsythia.
This Camellia is about 15 feet tall. Nash County dirt is wonderful.
No rocks and no red clay!
If anybody needs forsythia, it multiplies faster than rabbits.
Mom is always happy to have friends dig in her yard.
I think it was summed up best by John Vollmer's sign at his farm in Bunn....
We missed you!
