Just What I hoped For
Last spring, I noticed a distinctive shrub blooming in a lot of landscapes. I went to a nursery and bought one: a purple leaf sand cherry. The nursery staff told me that they are used a lot around here because they are hardy and can stand up to our hostile climate. I planted, watered a lot and wished for the best, because with our trees and awful soil, you never know.
I took this picture last week. It is beautifully in bloom.
