Spring Blossoms and a Surprise

17 Apr

I was worried about all my fruit trees with last week’s freeze warnings, but I’m more optimistic now.  The blossoms are just starting to open on the fruit trees. Here’s the cherry tree.

I actually have some peach blossoms this year, so I hope I get fruit from it again.  It’s been a couple of years.

The plum blossoms are a bit behind the other two.

Remember my poor apple tree that has been falling down for the last several years and the goats finally stripped the bark this spring.

Guess what!  It’s got leaves!

Not only does it have leaves, but it also has blossoms.

I don’t know how!

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The coming week’s items are at the top of my sidebar.

Today, I’m sharing with Macro Monday, I Heart Macro, Monday Mellow Yellows, and The Good. The Random. The Fun.

My Flowers

12 May

Random:  Doesn’t everyone have kids in their flower bed.  They seem to think it’s a perfect place to take a nap since it’s called a bed.

Good:  I guess it’s good they are still in my yard and hanging in there.  These are the three sick kids I’ve been working furiously to keep alive.  So far, so good, but I’m still not sure they are out of the woods.

Fun:  Flowers!  I really did find a few flowers.  I guess the bleeding hearts don’t taste very good.

They just couldn’t reach to the top of the trees for the apple blossoms and lilacs.

I just want to add that I’m very grateful that I wasn’t in the path of the severe weather that passed through the state last night.

What’s Blooming in the Back Yard

31 Mar

It’s amazing how quickly we went from a dry brown barren wasteland of a pseudo-winter to lush green.  The yard has already been mown once.  It’s unheard of to mow in March in my neck of the world, but it’s about to need it again.

The warm weather has brought my fruit trees to life.  Many have already blossomed and are starting to get their leaves.  Right now, the plum tree is in full bloom.

The weird weather of the last two years has been hard on the tree, but it looks like it’s starting to recover.  Its heavy scent fills the yard.

The apple tree is a bit behind, but it will be beautiful in just a short time.

The crabapple is also starting to blossom.

My flowering almond bushes are also blooming right now.  I have both pink and white.

My tulips are blooming as well.

Even the bleeding heart has its pretty delicate flowers.

It’s kind of strange to see about two months worth of flowers all blooming at the same time, but it does make for plenty of beauty in the back yard.
