It's most obvious on the pines...
Tis the pretty.

 Pine cones in the making??


This shrub had a rough start..
This is its third year and it's pushing out lots of new growth.
You know what they say about plantings..

First year, they sleep
Second year, they creep
Fourth year , they leap


This is a Winterberry bush
 with new growth where you don't want it.
I'll have to nip them off at their origins if it cools off soon.

Happy July (already) !!

Beautiful pictures. We have a blue deodora tree that is struggling a little in the heat this summer. Hope you have a great day.

You have LOTS of new growth. Okay - did you MEAN to write FOURTH year they leap instead of THIRD year they leap? lol

I'm always excited when I see new growth on our plants, even though it means some work for me later on. Loved the "growth tour"! Take care, Missy!

July did get here in a hurry. Very nice pictures!

"...E...", from VA, Beth said...

i agree with you ... July already ... so wild. i love anything pine ... i guess they call them conifer ... they have such character. when we were visiting Bryson canyon, the tour guide told us of folks who smell trees, so wild i thought but they do have a very fragrant smell. happy day!! ( :
