Anyhow---Spring is a wonderful time around our yard, beginning with these March flowers... Our biggest March joy this year was all of the many, many Daffodils we had. They bloomed from mid-March to mid-April... Amazing! Hope you saw the Daffodil blog post I did this past month.
Next came the big flowering trees/bushes (Forsythia and Red Bud--shown today, and Pink Dogwood in April)... Then came all of our Tulips (post coming soon). and now we have tons of gorgeous Irises blooming. The Roses are beginning to bloom --and next will come the Lilies and Daylilies. SO--you can see how exciting life is here in Tennessee.
I went through all of my March pictures and pulled out 12 to share with you today. Since I already showed the Daffodils (individually and up-close), I skipped most of those photos. I'm also skipping the Tulip photos since I will blog about them separately....
Now that it is MAY---it looks kinda funny to see our yard with no leaves on the trees in these pictures. There's a HUGE difference now, but that will have to be another future post.... ha.. Sit back and pretend it's still MARCH --and enjoy seeing our yard then!
|Next (after the Crocuses) came the HYACINTHS. We had 3-4 different colored ones this year and they were so pretty... They have a strong aroma also. This picture was taken on 3/13/16.|
|A pretty Hot Pink HYACINTH (taken 3/13/16)|
|A few years ago, we purchased a small FORSYTHIA Bush. This year was the first year that it bloomed A LOT... SO pretty in spring!!!! I thought you'd like to see a close-up of the blooms. Photo taken on 3/16/16;|
|Our Ground Cover (Periwinkle ---or Vinca Minor) is so gorgeous in March and April when it blooms and blooms. We love the little blueish (almost purple) flowers. (Picture taken on 3/25/16)|
|Here's a close-up of some of the Daffodils and Hyacinths in the bed in front of our Rose Bed. (Picture taken on 3/25/16)|
|We have two gorgeous RED BUD Trees in our yard. This is the largest one. We love seeing the Red Buds bloom in Spring. (Picture taken on 3/28/16)|
|Here's a close-up of some of the RED BUD blooms. Pretty against that blue sky, aren't they? (Photo taken on 3/28/16)|
|Here's one more picture of this bed filled with Daffodils, Tulips, Hyacinths. (In May/June, this bed will be filled with blooming Roses.) Photo taken on 3/31/16;|
|Our Home in March (taken 3/31/16); We loved it then with the green grass and all of the flowers blooming.... BUT?????? (See next picture)|
Well---that was our March!!! Next, I'll show you April in our yard.. In addition, I'll share a Tulip post. AND---we took a short trip to the North Carolina mountains (Cashiers) this past month --so that's another post.... AND--when will I have time to do all of this since we also have a trip planned in May??????? ha ha ha
BUT---all you need to know is that LIFE for George and me is GOOD... We both got one of the best medical reports (after our yearly physicals) that we have gotten. SO--I guess for a couple of OLD people, we are still plugging along.
If you missed seeing two more gorgeous ROSES on my Photo Blog yesterday, click HERE to see them...
Much LOVE to all of you,
