nothing’s died yet

But most exciting were our first-time bloomers. This little magnolia barely made it into the ground, but I’m glad it did. I’m already thinking that we’ll transplant it to the front someday when we cut down the sweet gum (a nice tree, but a squirrel magnet. And those seed balls are just crazy).

The cherry just started:

All in all, not too bad.
