Garden Bloggers Bloom Day May 15th

Spring has arrived at Plant Exchange Blog in South Dakota! Pelicans have migrated north and songbirds are everywhere. In our USDA Zone 4-5a region, we may have encountered the last frost to start the season.

Wild native plums are quite showy in early mornings and evenings these days.

  1. Those are so rad, especially the lilacs! They are uncommon here. I participated in this meme only a few times, but could not continue. I don’t know if I will be back to it.
