Springtime in the Ozarks

Serviceberry trees are the first to bloom in the Ozarks https://theblondegardener.com/2015/04/05/springtime-in-the-ozarks/

I love that we have four distinct seasons in the Ozark Mountains.

About the blonde gardener

I'm an Arkansas girl born and raised. I garden in the beautiful Northwest part of the state (zone 6b or 7) surrounded by the Ozark Mountains. My favorite part about the area is we have 4 distinct seasons and are able to enjoy a variety of activities. My main passion is gardening but I also enjoy hiking, birding, 4-wheeling and motorcycle trips. Basically anything outside. Thanks for stopping by! Brenda
