Dogwoods in bloom.
Azaleas in bloom
Flowers in the front.
Mine have already come, and gone....Trimmed the hedges back last weekend........
Still have Wisteria blooming everywhere though......and bougainvillea on both sides of the house....it's beautiful!
The unexpected cold after weeks of 70*+ weather nearly killed all the flowers around here. Even the dandelions are huddled down in the grass waiting for the warm to return. My rose canes are looking decidedly peaked but the peonies are starting to make a come back. Still, it'll be a while before we have anything blooming now.
Spring hasn't even begun to rear it head here in New England. As I write this, the sound of the sleet beating on the window is distracting me from my work. Thanks for reminding me of what's to come E,L,
The Dogwood and Azalea blooms have come and gone here as well. I took these pictures on the first of April, I just had not downloaded them until last night. RH, I hope that before long the sleet is gone for good. You never can tell, we had snow last week. Yes, snow in April. It was falling pretty hard for about an hour, but it didn't stick.
Don't fell like your the only one Faclon. All of our fruit trees were in full bloom so they are a total loss this year. We did manage to save the strawberries though. So it looks like we will at best have strawberries, blackberries, and maybe elderberries this year for fruit.
What about those trees I helped ya plant last year?
Most are doing well, I think the lemon tree is dead. We had some fruit on the trees last year, but the d@mn crows got to them first. Another couple of years and they should be really producing. Especially if I can keep the crows at bay.
It is so gorgeous here....I can't even begin to describe it....
Sunshine....Warm Breezes...Low 80's......Early morning walks on Mexico Beach every day.......
The only weird thing is I cannot get used to the Sun coming up BEHIND the water.....
What is up with that??????
I have lived on the Ocean too long....
spring my butt....
I live in a white hell.....
Cheer up, NW!
Build yourself a Blonde snowperson...
Of course, it takes a little extra time...
You have to hollow out the head
The tulips are blooming:
here in Maine we're waiting for the boobies to bloom
Okay. I might regret this, but: Do tell, NW.
all winter long the boobies have been covered up with sweaters, jackets and what not.....not for much longer....lol
