I stumbled across the very first salt cedar I ever saw a couple months ago, and it seems to have been in bloom continuously all summer. Is that unusual then?

Every day I'm out there, looking to see how much this one has grown today or which is sprouting. Things I've just planted I expect to see inches tall! But I only just planted them! Mostly in my yard it's, 'well did this one die too?' My success rate is getting better tho. 🤣

@lesliecole49 it’s a fascinating time in the garden, always something new to spot out there. But I’m with you on thinking every plant has died off before I’ve given it a chance to regrow 🤣
