This bush may be under my kitchen window, but I can't see it when I look out. Oh well.
This fuchsia color definitely says it's spring! Of course it's been hit by a few freezes since the buds first appeared.
It's funny that bushes that were planted at the same time, next to each other, have different times to bloom - full sun must do a lot for them.
Before the big renovation during which I was able to obtain one of these apartments, some of the residents had planted bulbs. This iris still remains, though now we're told the landscapers will do all the planting these days.
