Plants I'm Growing: Ribes Aurem (Golden Flowering Currant) 2010

The first flowers opened today on the large golden flowering currant bush by the beehive. Only a few buds have opened--prompted by a sudden wave of warmth; it was in the upper 60s here today. Soon the plant will be a mass of yellow. The bees love these flowers.

This plant bloomed on February 2 in 2009. So, a year according to Ribes aureum was 378 days--one of the longer years the plants in my garden have so far calculated.
