Whispers of spring

I have this dumb-ash ash tree that blooms and leafs out every February, only to get zapped by frigid cold every March.

Close-up of one bloom-to-be with courtyard wall behind it.

It's a cultivar that I bought 30 years ago before I knew better. It's called Fantex Ash (fraxinus velutina). Oh well, it never complains, so I guess I shouldn't.

That Red Yucca that I posted budding out (Jan 26 post) is growing fast. A result of all that rain we had early last month. But this plant shouldn't be impacted by upcoming freezes. It'll be great to have blooms soon.
