Our crab apple tree is beautiful when in bloom. I am worried that I have been seeing a lot of tent catterpillars crawling on it. Tent caterpillars can be easily seen because they build tents in the nodes and branches of a tree's limbs and at the end of the limbs, you'll see webworms. Right now, they are everywhere where I always go for a walk everyday and they grosses me out. I am not fond of worms so I don't like seeing them marching on the ground, ekkkk.
My sister-in-law, Jill, gave me some of her creeping phlox a couple of years and I grew it by our driveway. I decided to thin it out after a year and spread each vine though pout our driveway. It is beautiful when it in blooms during Soring time.
The Lilies of the valley are now in full bloom. Lily of the Valley or Convallaria majalis, is a sweetly scented but highly poisonous woodland flowering plant. However, it's interesting to note that although it is poisonous, it has been used as a folk remedy in moderate amounts and used by some herbalist as herbal remedy. This is native throughout the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere in Asia, and Europe.
