This morning I made such a wonderful discovery, that it is worthy of posting on both my garden blog, as well as my pottery blog. My young Davidii involucrata tree (dove tree or handkerchief tree), which I bought only 5 years ago as a small twig, and was prepared to wait up to 10 years for blooms, has had its first blooms this year.
Here is a photo of the young tree in bloom, with my small garden totems on either side. It was a very overcast morning. I look forward to taking more photos on a brighter day.
