The first thing I recommend is trying your paw at a Weather Control Device. You can see ours in the side-bar on the right - yes, the info on Siberia's weather, right under our weather. Our aim is to get our weather more in line with Siberia's. It's in the 50s there right now. Not as cold as we'd like it by any stretch of the imagination, but it beats the 83 we already have here (at 1030).
Here's a close up:
They do look like snowballs, don't they? They're actually called Snowball Viburnum. Unfortunately, the really heavy freeze we got around Easter this year killed off a lot of our blooms. Here's what our snowball bush looks like this year:
One measly snowball! Here's a wider view of the line up(the Snowball Viburnum are on first/lower tier):
Kind of sad, isn't it? They'll come back next year, though.
Behind them, we have a row of more Viburnums - another variety called Mohican Viburnums. There's the one closest to the house - that Mohican Viburnum has gotten really tall! Then the viburnum in the middle ... and then ... after that one ... do you know what that one is?
Are you ready for it?
It's the last of the Mohicans. Hee hee hee!!!!!!! Get it!?!? The Last of the Mohicans. Hee hee hee!
