I can't believe a whole week has gone by already!! There are some of my favourites blooming in the garden this week - I can't wait to show you!
First up - the weeping crab apple tree! This is in the garden that is directly adjacent to our patio and gazebo.
Here's a closer look at the blooms...they are a soft pink that fades to white.
Next up - the purple sandcherry trees - we have two of these - one at the back fence and another to the right of our deck. Here's the one at the back fence. I love the contrast with the yellow of the euyonomous and the green of the cedar. If you look closely you can see that the hostas are up quite a bit too!
Here's a closer look of the blooms on the tree near our deck.
I have saved the best for last!! The lilacs opened up this week too - we have a purple bush and a white one.
The white one is right outside our dining room window so they are easy to pick and bring inside. I took this picture right out of the window.
Here's an arrangement of some of both colours I brought inside to enjoy this week!
and a closer look at these as well...
Aren't they just beautiful and don't you just wish you could smell them...they are so fragrant.
I love this time of year and the gifts that spring brings!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY - I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!
