Kathy, I invite you to watch a video of a homesteading family I follow who are on the nationwide tour of permaculture gardens. I think you have the red clays of Georgia, but the principles apply to clay as well as the sand of the video I am sharing.

Daniel, your spring photos make me feel so good. I think I will be able to recover from my lack of spring color with your beautiful scenes. I will put up a hummingbird feeder.
The sparrows flock to the seed feeders, and I see no blue jays yet. I did see deer tracks around the feeder, yesterday.
Daniel, you are correct about syringa, it grows wild in the forest. I want to bring more into to property around the house. There are no purple ones here. I will keep my eyes open when in town next month. It is still too early here.
I started some daylilies here several years ago for my daughter and they do fine. So does Alchemilla mollis, commonly known as lady's mantle. It propagates easily.
Geranium sylvaticum (wood cranesbill, woodland geranium) spreads nicely and is easily controlled here. It is a pretty magenta color.
Laura doesn't want me to plant any deciduous trees in the clearing because of fire risks.
I'm at that time now, that I was last year when I yearned for spring color. With the deer, rabbits, and other wild animals, we have to fence these specimens and she doesn't like the look of wire, net, or wood fencing. Neither do I, really. I am going to gather Kinnikinnick and other specimens from the forest.
Hostas are sprouting here too. I love them; they're my favorite perennial. Gotta get slug bait on them or they'll be goners.
Kathy, it could be a Rufous hummingbird. We have Anna's hummingbirds too, year round. Rufous migrate. Like other things, this one is early this year.
Peach trees are unusual in that they often have good peaches from seedling trees. They usually start bearing in about 3 years. They grow fast.
These are just cellphone pics and not very good. Gives an idea of our spring now. The hummingbird pic is especially blurry, hard to catch them and it's through the kitchen window.
