Good Sunday morning to you all! Yesterday was another glorious sunny springtime day. I spent some time out in the yard with Noah after getting home from the vet’s, and I was astounded by how EVERYTHING is coming to life and blooming right now. Thought I’d share some of it with you.
First thing I see when I walk out my front door is my biggest, oldest Japanese maple. Every spring it has these seed berries on it. I am always hopeful that one or two will germinate and I can start another new little tree.
Right below the maple is this pot of the first daffodils of the year.
Just a little planning in the fall will reap a bright harvest in the springtime. I love planting pansies in the fall.
I didn’t get around to planting these hyacinths until the end of January, but they still cooperated by putting on a good show.
I planted a forsythia and a camelia right outside my front door many years ago. It is the total wrong place for a forsythia–total shade–but it struggles on each year.
I have a weeping flowering cherry that is also struggling. But always manages to bloom each spring. I always think about a lecture I heard a tree expert give. “Trees want to live,” he said.
And another view. I kind of like the blurry foreground with the background in focus.
That’s all for now, folks. Come back this afternoon. I have some fun pictures of Noah to share!
