Much ado about our wildflowers, but here's a quick break to feature some arresting shots of cultivated flora -- you can get away with just about anything in Zone 7B so long as you're willing to water... The gingko biloba, pictured last, is the surprise breakout of the Spring!
(PS: I never explicitly mentioned it, but any readers may feel free to download images for personal use, such as FB cover photos, or for your own weird stuff. Have at! <3)
